According to the changelog, the update improves the camera performance of the primary, ultrawide, and telephoto camera in daylight, as well as lowlight conditions. Apart from the improvements to the camera, the update also brings improvement to audio quality for voice calls in third-party apps, improved touch sensitivity of the screen, and improved double tap to wake.

If you haven’t received the update on your OnePlus 7 Pro yet, go to Settings -> System -> System Updates and check for the update manually. Hopefully, you’ll get the update. In case you still don’t receive the update and if you don’t want to wait for it either, you can head over to the OnePlus forum, where a few users have posted a downloadable zip file of the update, with which, you can update your OnePlus 7 Pro manually. However, neither the brand nor we recommend installing the update manually if you are not familiar with the process.

OnePlus 7 Might Receive A Similar Software Update

Although the update changelog shows a lot of improvements to the camera, it is to be seen how well does it reflect in the real-world usage. On the same note, we think, as the OnePlus 7 has the same 48MP primary camera as the OnePlus 7 Pro, it is very likely that the brand will roll out a similar software update to the OnePlus 7 as well to improve its camera performance. Stay tuned to know more. In the meantime, if you’ve received the update on your OnePlus 7 Pro, do let us know in the comments below if you’ve experienced any improvement in the camera performance.
