OnePlus to reconsider data collection policies after privacy fiasco

Fingerprint actions may be slower than you are used to. The software is being delivered over-the-air, and is an incremental update.

OnePlus 3 is getting the update as part of Open beta 24, while the OnePlus 3T is receiving it via Open Beta 15.

OnePlus has been under fire for the past few days for collecting sensitive user data including phone numbers, MAC addresses, and IMEI numbers.

Rafael Nadal sends Roger Federer a message after Shanghai Masters final defeat
Former British number one Greg Rusedski believes circumstances prevented Roger Federer from becoming the world number one. It's true that Nadal's record against opponents with one-handed backhands-including Federer-is tremendous.

Those who have already received the update have noticed improvement in battery life and less data mining. As you can see, this is only an indicator that it shouldn't be long before the phone gets the update, but the date is not specific.

OnePlus has been testing Android 8.0 Oreo update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T in a closed beta program for over a month now.

After being caught red-handed, OnePlus has announced that it will scale back on data collection on its devices.

END OF 1ST QUARTER: Cardinals lead Bucs 14-0
He was the heart of their offense and Carson Palmer looked like he was an issue. "You could kind of see it on the defense's face". Buccaneers starting quarterback Jameis Winston was pulled out of the game after suffering an injury to his throwing shoulder.

The update is beta version 25 for the OnePlus 3 and beta version 16 for the OnePlus 3T. This beta update for the two OnePlus devices brings security patch up to September 2017 along with the Android Oreo update. Both the OnePlus phone users with the new update will be able to add OnePlus account login for access to Shot on OnePlus, due to which the OnePlus 3, 3T users will be able to upload photos directly to Shot on OnePlus through wallpapers.

The new Android Oreo beta update also comes with Notification dots in Launcher. We must, however, remind you that since this is an alpha build, you will come across bugs and issues. The Open Beta program allows OnePlus to release the latest software in a controlled manner to test it on a wide audience before releasing it officially. Many expected that the phone would be the first to receive the update to Android Oreo, but OnePlus had other ideas. Until then, you will have to enjoy the beta build on the older OnePlus 3/3T devices.
