It's been only three days since the OnePlus 5T sale officially kicked off across the globe and now the device has received the first software update with several improvements and also a very critical security patch.

If you are one of the few lucky OnePlus 5T owners, be sure to check for the OxygenOS 4.7.2 update notification on your device's screen and if yes, download and install it as soon as possible.

As per the change-log (courtesy, Android Police), the OxygenOS 4.7.2 comes with the crucial security patch to plug KRACK WPA2 Wi-Fi bug , which left unattended will make the phone vulnerable to hackers, who have devised a malicious code to high jack and steal any information from the device.

The new OxygenOS update also brings improvements to OnePlus 5T front-camera's Face Unlock feature, enhance EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation) feature during 4K video recording, optimise fingerprint unlock system and improve over-all stability of the device.
