Download the OnePlus 10 Pro’s OxygenOS 13 Open Beta 1
Make sure your device has at least 30% battery life and 4GB of free storage before running the beta version. Additionally, the device has to be running the OxygenOS 12 A.15 build. You cannot sideload the release unless the local update APK is separately obtained and installed on the global model.
By downloading the region-specific rollback package and installing it on top of the OxygenOS 13 beta, you may roll back at any time to the stable release. Notably, doing this will erase all of your data, so make a backup beforehand.
