    Something which really helps. It really helpful. Thanks OnePlus for your efforts to create amazing user experience for your users.
    And eagerly waiting for OS11. Who else with me🙋🏻‍♂️?
    Have a check on Nord's battery drain problem and macro camera. Otherwise it's good alrounder.
    And also I'm getting ready to buy 8T.

    Hi @Starcommander,

    I'd like to ask why you feel like this is polution. This is no way adds weight to the OS, as the knowledge base is online, not on the device itself.

    OB17/7 for 7/7t-series was released two months ago https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/...-beta-17-for-the-oneplus-7-pro-and-7.1271776/ https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/...or-the-oneplus-7t-and-oneplus-7t-pro.1271774/ , I don't know if your posts get signed off but if that's the case whoever is in charge of that hasn't done their job correctly.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll edit the post accordingly to avoid any confusion. Since I don't have any of those devices with me, do you mind confirming if that version already has that feature built-in?
