It’s the end of the line for the OnePlus 6 and 6T when it comes to software updates

OnePlus 6

Having launched back in 2018, the OnePlus 6 and 6T have reached the end of the line when it comes to official software updates. The OxygenOS update that rolled out in December 2021 has been confirmed to be the last official software for the two models.

Considering that the OnePlus 6 and 6T launched back in 2018 and have received three major Android OS upgrades, not to mention the many open beta builds and security patches, they’ve done pretty well.

OnePlus staffer Abdul B. confirmed the end of software support for the OnePlus 6 and 6T over on the company’s forum:

“After 3 major updates and more than 3 years of updates, around 60 Closed Beta builds and over 30 Open Beta builds it’s now time to close a chapter and announce the end of OnePlus 6 and 6T official software support. It was thanks to your constant support that we were able to constantly improve the software experience on these devices and we can’t thank you enough for your constant feedback. We would like to share a special word of appreciation to all the beta testers, that, since 2018, have been testing features before they would get released to the stable version. You played a huge role in optimizing OxygenOS to ensure an overall better experience.”

This means that the OnePlus 6 and 6T will stay on Android 11 with the November ’21 security patch unless you decide to delve into the world of custom ROMs such as Lineage OS 18.1.
