OnePlus has started rolling out Android 9.0 Pie update to its OnePlus 6 users. OnePlus said that OxygenOS version will now correspond with the latest Android update. This means the latest OxygenOS version will be v9.0.

Android Pie update for OnePlus 6 users is being rolled out over-the-air in a phased manner. The update will be updated to a limited number of users initially before a broader rollout in the coming days. OnePlus hopes this will help fix bugs before wider rollout.

"Using VPN to download this build might not work as the rollout is not based on regions and is randomly pushed out to a limited number of devices," said OnePlus on its website.

"Your feedback is appreciated. We may not always be able to respond to every comment in the forums, but please be assured that we take your comments and feedback seriously," it added.
