OnePlus One Android update


OnePlus One Android Marshmallow update

In mid-November, OnePlus announced its plans for unfurling Marshmallow across its range of devices. The OnePlus One is scheduled to receive a Marshmallow update to Cyanogen OS in Q1 of 2016.
The company said it does plan to eventually do the same for its own OS, OxygenOS, on the OnePlus One, but it is not a priority and will happen "when time allows".

OnePlus One Android Lollipop update

A 66.8 MB incremental update to Cyanogen OS began rolling out on December 30, bringing the OnePlus One to software version 12.1-YOG7DAS2K1. Most notably, the update adds integration features for Microsoft's intelligent personal assistant, Cortana, its version of Google Now.
Earlier in 2015, Cyanogen OS 12.1 rolled out for the OnePlus One, bringing with it critical security fixes (particularly for Stagefright).
If, for some reason, you haven't yet received the update, you can download it now from one of the links below and flash it yourself. It is advised that you make sure your device is fully charged before installing the update.
  • Get the update to Cyanogen OS 12.1 for any previous OnePlus One software version here.  
  • If you are already running a Cyanogen update based on Android 5.0, you can download a smaller package here.
Previous coverage: OnePlus provided an update on the status of the latest Cyanogen software rollout via its forums, stating: "CM12.1, updated to 5.1, is on its way. We have a preview build that's undergoing factory testing and Google certification. You will have it soon."
In addition, clarification on the status of the OxygenOS update was provided: "We won't have an OTA for the community build of OxygenOS we released back in April until after the OnePlus 2 release."
On the upside, the touchscreen issue that many users have been experiencing is being worked on, and a fix will be included in both Cyanogen and OxygenOS updates. You can read more about these two UIs in our Cyanogen vs OxygenOS comparison.
