All the previous updates released by the company came out with serious Wi-Fi related issues that drained the battery of the phone quickly. However, with this update, all those issues have been fixed. Furthermore, OnePlus is asking feedback of the new update.

The Oxygen OS 4.1.0 update is rolling out incrementally, and it takes some time to reach your phone. However, if you want to update your phone right away, download the OperaVPN app from Google Play Store and set the country to either Canada or Germany. After selecting the country, manually check for the update and you will surely receive the update.
