OnePlus has been known to keep up the promises made to its consumers, and one such promise comes in accordance to the fixing an issue that their latest device, OnePlus X has been facing. The Chinese mobile startup will be rolling out the OxygenOS 2.1.3, which will address certain issues of SD card and some unknown security issues that we have addressed previously in our post here.

The OnePlus X users out there should receive this software update starting today. But do make a note that this is an incremental update, and I know we all hate that but according to the company it’s the only way to make sure that it doesn’t result in triggering any other issue. So, till then I suggest you don’t get comfy with SD card on your OnePlus X.

Most changes here address improvements around memory card, bringing better user experience, ability to move apps to and from SD card. Additionally, there are some security patches and general bug fixes as well. Below is the full change log of what OxygenOS 2.1.3 would be holding for you.

  • SD card related improvements including:
    • UX improvements
    • exFAT SD card support
    • Ability to move apps to and from SD card
    • Fixed reboots caused by removing SD card in an active state
  • Security patches
  • General bug fixes and optimizations

Company quotes, “We are not done yet so; please expect more updates and feature additions to come in the next couple of OTAs”. So we are expecting some more improvements like a gallery app and an ability to select the default storage as SD card from the camera app, if not already done on the 2.1.3 update.

So, it may be around 24 hours before you get a notification for the software patch. Although, make sure to share your feedback when you do receive the update.
