May 28, 2019: T-Mobile has a new software update for the OnePlus 7 Pro as OxygenOS 9.5.6.GM31CB. Unlike the global variants that got updated with plenty of camera improvements in the most-recent rollout, T-Mo users are only receiving April 2019 security patches.

Even more distressing is that a few users have reported issues with ambient display and double tap to wake after installing the latest firmware – issues that the latest global updates fixed. Hopefully, these issues won’t be a problem for many and will be addressed with a quick hotfix.

Just to be safe, you might want to wait for a few days before updating to OxygenOS 9.5.6 on your T-Mo OnePlus 7 Pro, at least until the coast is clear to cross.
