OnePlus, a company who once had a rocky update history, has slowly been improving in the area since the release of the OnePlus 3 two years ago. All the current and future OnePlus users will get Android updates to their phone for two years from the launch and security patches for three years.

OnePlus is one of the few brands in the market right now which takes the software updates section seriously.

If you are using any old OnePlus smartphone like OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5 or OnePlus 5T then here's some good news for you.

One of the biggest complaints and hesitations around purchasing a OnePlus device was if it would be updated and left behind in the Android software lifecycle. Today, OnePlus announced a firm software maintenance schedule for its recent and upcoming smartphones.

Approval of first marijuana-based drug opens doors for people with epilepsy
The administration pointed out that unlike THC, a more well-known chemical component of marijuana, CBD doesn't cause intoxication. The drug , named Epidiolex , received unanimous recommendation from an FDA advisory committee in April .

Android One also guarantees that your phone will receive at least two years of OS upgrades to the latest version of Android, as well as at least three years of security patches. This schedule applies for the OnePlus 3/3T, OnePlus 5/5T and the newly launched OnePlus 6, and will be effective immediately. With Google including OnePlus in the early stages of Android P, it seemed promising that the device would have an expedited path to the final Android P build. Having the reassurance that throughout the time a user owns the device will see not only regular security patches but also timely software updates with new features can only help improve the appeal and integrity of OnePlus.

Not a lot of smartphone OEMs bother with regular and timely software updates for their devices.

Serena Williams seeded 25th for Wimbledon despite ranking of 183
Business Insider contacted the All England Club to find out their justification for the seeding, but is yet to receive a response. The US Open Grand Slam in NY has said it will update its seeding policy to take into account a player returning from a pregnancy.

It's similar to the commitments made by Google and its Pixel range, albeit with OnePlus's OxygenOS rather than stock Android - not that there's much difference where the OnePlus 6 is concerned. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo-based Oxygen OS and is backed by a 3300mAh battery.
