Are you a OnePlus phone owner? To be precise, do you use a OnePlus 7 Pro device? Then you must already know that OnePlus have a proper software update team and their most recent phones receive the latest features and security patches as soon as they are released on Google Pixel phones.
However, in a few cases, those updates can still take some time to reach you, so you might be thinking of how to update OnePlus software immediately it is rolled out. And this tutorial is here to help with just that.
Most times, OnePlus will share an official announcement of a fresh update to Oxygen OS and then incrementally release that update. Due to this norm, you might get an update notification on your device days or even weeks after the software actually gets released.
Fortunately, it is simple to update OnePlus smartphones with the most recent version of Oxygen OS without having to hold on for the company to push the notification to you. It requires more effort from you though, but if you are the kind of customer that want the most recent updates as soon as possible, you have to know how to make that happen.

- On the "Choose your update method" page, choose "Incremental update." Scroll left.
- A large red checkmark will be visible. You can choose to help the devs by clicking the checkbox at the bottom of the page, which instantly uploads file names. Or, you can skip this if you want. Any which way, click "Start app" when you are set.
