OnePlus 7 series of smartphones debuted back in 2019, and the company has since constantly released upgrades for both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T models. That won’t be the case, though, as OnePlus has declared that it would no longer provide software upgrades for its OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T device series.
OxygenOS 9 came pre-installed on the OnePlus 7 series when it was introduced in May 2019. The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro were included in the lineup. The OnePlus 7T series, which debuted in October 2019 and featured the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro, came pre-installed with OxygenOS 10. With the release of the final OxygenOS 12, the devices have officially reached the end of support.
Software support for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series is now officially over
The software support for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T family of devices has been discontinued, according to OnePlus, which announced this via its official community page. The business has finished its two major Android OS updates and a year’s worth of security updates for both lineups.
OnePlus stated in the community forum that “MP3 will be the last build for OnePlus 7/7 Pro, thank you everybody for your help and attention to OnePlus.”
The OnePlus devices released after the OnePlus 8 series will continue to receive updates going forward (the OnePlus 9 series will receive three significant Android releases and four years of security patches), but the OnePlus 7 series does not seem to be having the same luck. If you are still using a smartphone from the OnePlus 7 series and you are extremely concerned about regular software updates, it is probably time for you to change to a new model. In addition, on February 7th in India, the OnePlus 11 will go on sale if you decide to stay with the OnePlus ecosystem.
