OnePlus 8T and 8 series get a new OxygenOS update with up-to-date security patches

Hot on the heels of OxygenOS betas for the OnePlus 8 family last week, OnePlus is now rolling out a new stable update to its 2020 flagship series. This is a minor update that mostly squashes bugs and improves the overall performance, with the only noteworthy highlight being the updated security patches.
