Did you know that you can also manually download the update and install it at your own convenience on your OnePlus device? In this article, we are going to talk about How to Download and Install One Plus Updates. Let’s begin!

This gives you the ability to download the update. Whenever you are connecting to the Wi-Fi and install it when you are not using the phone. Plus, you can also use this method to update to the latest public beta in order to enjoy the latest features. OnePlus release this for your device.

You just have to follow our simple step by step guide to manually download and install these updates on your android device. Let us get started.


Make sure that you back up all the important data (including photos and videos, contacts, music, videos, files, etc.) on your OnePlus device.

How to download the right update file

  • Here, two types of updates are available. The stable updates are called ‘Official Build’. However, beta updates (aka Open Beta) are available as ‘Beta Build’.
  • Choose the build you want.

FYI, select a beta update only if you know what you are doing as these updates. They are not completely suited as a daily driver. We would recommend you opt for the stable updates only, labeled ‘Official Build’ on the page.

Click or tap the Download button to download the update. Let it download fully on your PC or mobile. it may take some time. And you should use Wi-Fi to avoid data charges.

installing a stable update over a beta update wipe data?

No, it won’t, at least generally. But it is good to back up the data, just in case. See the backup section above to back up your OnePlus device.

installing a beta update over a stable update wipe data?

Yes, this will wipe your device. Just like a factory reset. So, make sure you have backed-up all necessary files and data.

Installing a stable update over a beta version currently installed on your OnePlus device that causes data wipe. Because you are installed a new update over an old update.

Although, if you are on a beta update, but there is a new update that is a stable update. Then it might not cause data wipe. But be sure to back up already.
