What you need to know

  • OnePlus will begin rolling out the OxygenOS Open Beta 4 for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro next week.
  • The update adds new “Raise to lower the ringtone” feature and support for transfer of iPhone data through iCloud.
  • Along with new features, the OxygenOS Beta 4 build for the two phones also includes several optimizations and bug fixes.

OnePlus has announced the latest OxygenOS Open Beta 4 for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, just two weeks after releasing the OxygenOS Open Beta 3 for the two phones. However, the latest Open Beta 4 build is currently available only for some OnePlus 7 Pro users.

In a post on OnePlus forums, the company said that its team is currently addressing an issue with the build, which is the reason why owners of the OnePlus 7 will have to wait until next week to try it out.

The Android 10-based OxygenOS Open Beta 4 for the two phones comes with several optimizations, improvements, and bug fixes. There are a few new features too, such as “Raise to lower the ringtone” gesture in Sounds & Vibration for incoming phone calls and support for transferring data from an iPhone through iCloud with the help of the OnePlus Switch app. It also adds The Weather Channel as a data source for the OnePlus weather app.

Here’s the full changelog:

While the Open Beta 4 build isn’t available to download yet, some users have reported that they were able to download and install it on their OnePlus 7 Pro with the help of the third-party Oxygen Updater app. If you own a OnePlus 7, however, you will not be able to get the build early, even if you use the Oxygen Updater app.
