The OnePlus 7 series now sits as the last smartphone in the OnePlus list of eligible smartphones for OxygenOS 12. That said, these devices are still running OxygenOS 11 and should be this way for several months. If we recall, the OnePlus 6 series had to wait until the mid of 2021 to get OxygenOS 11. While the new update does not come for these 2019 smartphones, the company will keep making the current OxygenOS 11 build stable and safe. Today, it is rolling out a new update at the perfect time for Christmas! It’s the OxygenOS 22.214.171.124 update that carries the December 2021 security patch and a set of enhancements. The update comes for the OnePlus 7, 7 Pro, 7T, and 7T Pro.
