Download: OnePlus 7/7T series gets OxygenOS Open Beta 17/7 with August 2020 security patches and bug fixes

OnePlus recently announced a revision to the frequency of OxygenOS Open Beta update rollouts. To improve the stability of their public beta builds, the company is going to reduce the frequency of Open Beta updates to a single OTA per month instead of 2 (or more, considering hotfixes). In accordance with the new strategy, OnePlus had rolled out an open beta build in June and July. And for the new month of August, we have a new set of Open Beta builds that bring over August 2020 security patches and a bunch of bug fixes.

The update bumps the Android security patch level (SPL) to August 2020 and includes several fixes and optimizations. The update also includes a new user assistance feature, which includes tips on how to use the phone. This is present at Settings > OnePlus Tips & Help.

The complete changelog for the Open Beta 17 and Open Beta 7 update for the OnePlus 7 series and OnePlus 7T series can be found below:
