Note: The Ambient Mode displays “proactive” information whenever it is plugged in handset i.e. what is the time left for full charging of the phone, how much time is required for the commute, is there a new email, message, reminder and so on. It can also be turned into a digital photo frame or an interface to control smart home devices.
What’s More by OnePlus: The Much Awaited OnePlus 7T update arrives in India
As announced by Manu J, One Plus has started to push the updates for One Plus owners- OxygenOS 10.0.8 (global) and 10.3.1(India) for the OnePlus 7T. Interestingly, these updates are incremental in nature and will reach a small number of select users first, and when confirmed bug-free, they will be rolled out to the larger audience.
