OnePlus 5, 5T Receives the Latest OxygenOS 5.1.4 Update Alongside July Security Patch


The OnePlus Flagships from last year, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are getting the latest OxygenOS 5.1.4 stable OTA update. The update comes right after the company rolled out OxygenOS 5.1.4 update, which fix for a critical bug that was discovered in the bootloader of the OnePlus 6. The company plans to roll it out in a phased manner.

OxygenOS 5.1.4 Update: What Does it Bring?

The latest update comes with the July 2018 security patch for both OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. The update also brings bug fixes and performance improvements. The OxygenOS 5.1.4 also comes with a new battery related feature called “Sleep Standby Mode,” which is designed to control the battery drain when the smartphone is not being used. While announcing the new update in the forum post, OnePlus also claimed that the device intelligently tracks the usage pattern. Furthermore, when the device is not touched, all the networks get turned off to reduce battery drain. And when it’s for you to wake up again, all the network restrictions are cancelled again and the device gets out of “Sleep Standby” mode. This makes sure that you do not miss out on any important notifications. In order to activate or deactivate this feature, you can go to Settings > Battery > Battery Optimizations > Advance Optimization > Sleep standby optimization.

OxygenOS 5.1.3 Update: Details

The OxygenOS 5.1.3 was also an OTA update and was rolled out last month only. The update came with the fix for a critical bug that was spotted in the bootloader of the OnePlus 6 by an independent security researcher. Although the bug was found on the latest OnePlus flagship, this update fixed the flaws in OxygenOS on the older devices including OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. Furthermore, there were some general bug fixes and improvements across the software along with a fix for a stability issue regarding Bluetooth connections for cars.
