There’s good news for owners of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. You can now upgrade OxygenOS to 4.1.1.

This update upgrades the phones to Android 7.1.1 and offers the following features and fixes:

  • Added expanded screenshots
  • Improved picture taking of moving objects with blur reduction
  • Improved video stability when recording
  • Improved WiFI connectivity
  • Improved bluetooth connectivity
  • Fixed Instagram swiping bug
  • Fixed hardware buttons malfunction bug
  • General bug fixes

The roll out of the OxygenOS update will be incremental, hitting users in batches in order to avoid any widespread bugs or failures. Over the next few days the update should be rolled out to all owners, however, so the wait won’t be too long if you haven’t yet received the option to upgrade.

The OnePlus 2 also received a recent update, but that update is separate from the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

The upgrade to OxygenOS 3.5.8 added the following:

  • Updated Google security patch to 1st March 2017
  • Fixed echo issue during video calls in Duo App
  • Fixed persistent network drop issues
  • Fixed data roaming issue in certain countries
  • Improved audio compatibility
  • General bug fixes

Users on the OnePlus forums expressed disappointment that the OnePlus 2 still hasn’t been updated to support Android Nougat 7.0, but at least the phone is being kept up to date as far as security patches and bug fixes go.

Like the updates for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, the rollout will be incremental and owners can expect to receive the update within the next few days.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
