OnePlus 10T Receiving OxygenOS 13 Open Beta In India: Worth Upgrading?

OnePlus is on an Android update spree in October 2022. It rolled out the OxygenOS 13 Open Beta 2 update for its OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. It was followed by an OxygenOS 13 Open Beta upgrade for the OnePlus 9RT and the OnePlus 8 series of smartphones. Now it has extended its support to the OnePlus 10T devices in India.

 

The OnePlus 10T was launched in August 2022 and came loaded with OxygenOS 12 based on the Android 12 OS. Now, it will be upgraded to the OxygenOS 13 based on Android 13 OS.

OnePlus 10T OxygenOS 13 Open Beta: Should You Upgrade?

This is a beta update based on the Android 13 OS and not a stable build. It could pack in some bugs and glitches, which might dull the user experience. OnePlus has also listed some known issues with the build. It states that the wallpaper might appear blurred in some scenarios. The charging prompt on the lock screen is broken and the Movie mode screen expansion option is erratic. There are chances that a few more bugs may crop up after extensive usage.

It is also worth noting that this is a major OS update and may wipe your device clean. If you wish for a smooth UI experience, then this build is certainly not for you. It would be advisable to stay on the Android 12 stable build. The adventurous kind can check for the install guide below.
