OnePlus has announced a software update for the OnePlus X and its OxygenOS. The update brings us up to version 2.1.3, and while the changelog isn’t terribly long — most of it is your typical performance improvements, bug fixes and monthly security patches — they did spend a good chunk of the list’s length to talk about some optimizations they’ve made to memory card performance.
- SD card related improvements including:
- UX improvements
- exFAT SD card support
- Ability to move apps to and from SD card
- Fixed reboots caused by removing SD card in an active state
- Security patches
- General bug fixes and optimizations
Oneplus generally start our OTA rollout with a small percent (~10%, randomly chosen) of our users to ensure that the OTA system is working correctly. The reason we do this is so that in case we find any serious issues, we can contain the problem quickly and find a solution before it impacts a wider audience. This also allows us the address the affected users quickly without too much of a queue. We usually open up OTAs to the general public 24-48 hours after the initial release if all goes well.
