Since the release of Android 13 a few months ago, OnePlus has been diligent in updating its products to run the latest operating system. While devices like the OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, 8T, and others are now in the open beta testing stage, the flagship OnePlus 10 Pro has already received the stable OxygenOS 13 update.
The Android 13 beta distribution schedule through the first half of 2023 has been disclosed by OnePlus. The Stable release of OxygenOS 13 may take a few extra months, thus it's crucial to keep in mind that these release schedules apply to OxygenOS 13 Beta only.

OxygenOS 13 Features
Recall that OxygenOS 13 has New Always-On Display modes that will bring the best AoD screens from prior OxygenOS versions as well as some new ones, such as Insight AoD. Additionally, there will be improved app compatibility, with new AoD widgets enabling playback control for apps like Spotify right from the AoD screen.
For those devices where the hardware supports the feature, OxygenOS 13 will add support for spatial audio. Users will be able to navigate around movies and other material with the help of spatial audio, creating a more engaging experience.
Aquameorphic design, support for smart launchers and sidebars, and improved security are further improvements.
