The OTA is already available, but we still don’t have the manual download file.

Android Q, Android R, and Android S updates
Given the recent direction that OnePlus took, where the OnePlus 3 and 3T are expected to lead the way in receiving at least three Android OS upgrades, going forward, we expect OnePlus 5, 5T, OnePlus 6 and 6T to receive at least three OS upgrades.
Since OnePlus 6T has Android 9 Pie out of the box, we are looking at updates to Android Q, Android R and Android S, but of course, this is just us speculating. Nonetheless, the 6T will get at least two major OS upgrades, but we hope a third version comes through, just like the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
