The OxygenOS 9.0.6 update for the OnePlus 6T brings optimized image processing capabilities, improved unlocking features, and some bug fixes and stability improvements to further enhance the experience of the users. The company recently rolled out the OxygenOS 9.0.5 update that brings improvements to the in-display fingerprint sensor along with some unspecified bug fixes.
Among the new features, OnePlus has notified on its official forum that the OxygenOS 9.0.6 update for the OnePlus 6T improves the unlocking experience of the users. This indicates that the new update brings improvements to the in-display fingerprint sensor aided unlocking mechanism on the OnePlus 6T.

Other features in the OxygenOS 9.0.6 update includes optimized battery power consumption to provide a longer standby time.

Just like the previous software rollouts, the OxygenOS 9.0.6 update is being rolled out in phases which means it will take a few days to reach all the users. However, the company is expected to launch the rollout on a global scale in the coming days.
Users can check for the availability of the update on their OnePlus 6T device by heading to Settings> System Updates. However, before installing the update, it is recommended to take a backup of all the data on the phone to prevent accidental deletion.
