Access Stock Do Not Disturb functionality on the OnePlus 6/5T/5/3T/3

The alert slider on OnePlus phones is one of the features that sets them apart from other phones. However, the alert slider on the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5, and OnePlus 5T works differently than the OnePlus 6.

Historically, OnePlus has not been exactly good when it comes to system updates. After all, this is the company that prematurely dropped support for their older flagship, the OnePlus 2, as well as the OnePlus X, by not officially releasing Android 7.0 Nougat for them---despite past promises. As of recently, however, they have proved to have...
