LineageOS 16 finally arrives at OnePlus 6 officially: here are the detailed update information

By  Sophia Windsor 2019-06-17 470 0

OnePlus 6 was launched last year, about a year ago now, and as is customary with the Chinese brand, it is one of the mobiles with a more active Android community. In general the OnePlus are mobiles given to the cooking of ROMs, and one of the most popular is still LineageOS. Now LineageOS 16 for OnePlus 6 is finally a reality.

LineageOS 16 for OnePlus 6

Just a few days ago we learned that the OnePlus 6 has received a new update that has greatly improved the performance of the camera.

The changes of LineageOS 16

Of course, the most important thing is the change of the operating system behind, which goes from Android Oreo 8.1 to Android Pie 9.0. Recently the LineageOS team has focused on refactoring and cleaning the code so that future upgrades would be easier, and in the future they hope to allow them to focus more on new features.

Part of this factorization focuses on the Styles API, the ROM theme system, which they claim to have adapted to get along well with the system's impending night mode. The application of the pre-installed calculator takes advantage to add the dark mode through this API.

Other interesting changes include Trebuchet, the brand's launcher, which can now hide applications so you need to identify yourself before opening them and the ability to lock the USB connector when the device is locked.

The list is completed with support for Exchange, as well as the update of the Chromium Webview to version 71.0.3578.99 and the inclusion of the latest security patches for December, January and February.

Now you can enjoy LineageOS 16 for OnePlus 6

Cyanogen's heir for some reason had not yet arrived at OnePlus 6, when the most normal is that the new official versions of this alternative system arrive very soon to the new mobiles of the Chinese brand, but in this case had not been so. But the same happens with the OnePlus 6T that had not yet released this version, and as is logical, much less in the case of the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. But now in the case of the OnePlus 6 the wait is over and the version 16 of Lineage OS is already available for the OnePlus 6.

This new version of LineageOS 16 for the OnePlus 6 is based on Android 9 Pie, so it is the last available of this alternative system, waiting for LineageOS 17 to become reality at some point. To be able to enjoy this alternative to OxygenOS in OnePlus 6, we need to go to the LineageOS page to download the ROM for OnePlus 6. Logically, to install it we must unlock the bootloader of the phone and install a recovery, which allows us to install the alternative ROM easily.

As usual, we will also need the Gapps to be able to count on Google apps and services on the smartphone. With this new version of LineageOS 16 for OnePlus 6, many users will enjoy a practically pure Android version on their phones. Although in recent years fewer and fewer users opt for a ROM of this type, since the software layers are becoming less intrusive and more similar to AOSP. As usual, the available versions are nightly, so at the moment they are not the most stable, but the most normal is that they work almost perfectly. Something for which LineageOS is still popular, because it is a system that despite almost always working with preliminary versions, the rate of failure and instability is very low.
