OnePlus has now begun rolling out Oxygen OS 3.0.2, based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, to users. The update began to hit devices on June 5, and OnePlus hopes to have it fully deployed within 48 hours.
The update will clear your stored fingerprints, so you will have to rescan your fingers once the update is installed. Otherwise, it comes with a host of improvements, including Marshmallow's battery-saving Doze mode and a new camera UI. Find out more about the update and what it contains in the OnePlus forums.
Previously. a user had reached out to Android Police with a set of screenshots showing their OnePlus 2 running OxygenOS 3.0 based on Android Marshmallow, suggesting that a soak test of the update was underway. The images show not only the new OS version number but also some changes that OnePlus has made to its own operating system. These changes include new wallpaper, an alert slider and more customization options for the home screen.
OnePlus announced the OxygenOS 2.2.0 rollout on December 21. It's an incremental deployment, so it may take some time to arrive on your device, but rest assured it's on its way.
The update brings security patches, as well as a number of fixes, including for dual SIM preference selection issues and Google Camera bugs. It also adds a quick setting for adjustable screen temperature, holiday wallpapers and the ability to hide the search bar option in launcher settings.

The OxygenOS 2.1.0 update was announced via the OnePlus forums, with the following improvements:
- Manual camera mode
- Raw support for third party camera apps
- Color balance slider in display settings for adjusting the color tone of the screen, a feature recently seen on the Huawei Mate S)
- Added Exchange support
- Fixes for problems with popular third party apps
- Telephone service improvements to reduce "lag" when you turn airplane mode on or off
- Other bug fixes and improvements
While these updates are welcome, it's unclear whether they cover some of the issues we were expecting. Several problems have been reported as a result of installing the previous update, OxygenOS 2.0.2, including battery drain, fingerprint scanner issues, poor quality images from the front-facing camera, and broken third-party camera apps.
While the latter has been fixed, and manual mode could improve the front-facing camera quality, we'll have to wait to see whether the other problems have been fully addressed. You can download the OxygenOS 2.1.0 zip file here to flash the update yourself, should you wish to do so.
