OnePlus 8, 8 Pro and 8T get Buds Pro support, August security patch with latest update

Peter, 18 August 2021

What a coincidence – the OnePlus Buds Pro are now available in Europe and the company started rolling out the 11.0.8.8 update for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, which adds support for the TWS headset. There are other improvements as well, including optimizing the Portrait mode for the front-facing camera.

If you have a OnePlus 8T, a very similar update – 11.0.9.9 in India and 11.0.10.10 in the rest of the world – brings the same changes to the T-phone as well.

The Always On Display now has a screenshot feature and a Bitmoji AOD option, which was co-developed with Snapchat. Bitmoji are digital avatars that can be used by various apps, e.g. the Gboard keyboard.

Anyway, this update also improves the system stability and bumps the security patch up to August 2021. It also installs the OnePlus Store app, which helps you manage your 1+ account, get support and (of course) shop for OnePlus products. This can be uninstalled if you don’t care for it.

Here’s the complete changelog for the OnePlus 8 series:

  • System
    • Newly adapted OnePlus Buds Pro and brought new powerful features
    • Newly added the screenshot feature for AOD
    • Fixed the failed issue of Navigation gestures in some scenes
    • Improved system stability and fixed known issues
    • Updated Android security patch to 2021.08
  • Camera
    • Optimized the portrait mode effect of the front camera
  • OnePlus Store
    • An intuitive and convenient way to manage your OnePlus account, get easy-to-access support, discover exciting members-only benefits, and shop for OnePlus products. (Please note that it can be uninstalled)
  • Ambient Display
    • Newly added Bitmoji AOD, co-designed with Snapchat, which will liven up the ambient display with your personal Bitmoji avatar. Your avatar will update throughout the day based on your activity and things happening around you (Path: Settings - Customization - Clock on ambient display - Bitmoji)
