OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T OxygenOS 10.3.7 Update

According to the official forum post, the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T have started receiving the OxygenOS 10.3.7 update with system and gaming space improvements. The system updates include the addition of the “Hide silent notifications in status bar” feature which can be enabled by going to Settings > Apps and Notifications > Opinion > Advanced > Hide silent notifications in status bar. Issues with screenshots not working have also been fixed. Overall system stability and general bugs have been fixed with the latest update.

In terms of Game Space improvements, a game toolbox has been added for Fnatic mode which allows you to choose three notification modes, namely text only, warning and blocking. A quick reply feature has been added for WhatsApp and INS which opens messages in a small window. A contact error prevention function has also been added.

Game Space is OnePlus’ way of bringing together all the games installed on the phone into a single space. It includes a gaming mode that prioritizes gaming experience over notifications. You can enable graphics optimizations and Fnatic mode which optimizes CPU, GPU and RAM for optimal gaming experience.

OnePlus states that this OTA update will have a staged rollout and will initially be received by a limited number of users. After a few days, there will be a wider rollout. If you did not receive a notification for the update, go to Settings > System > System updates. Additionally, the company adds that using a VPN to download the update may not work as the rollout is not region-based.
