OnePlus has improved the full screen gestures to add a swipe to go back. To use this, swipe from the left or right edge of the screen (similar to what MIUI has). There is a new navigation bar on the bottom which you can use to switch to other apps (swipe left or right).
The Ambient Display now has a Contextual Display, which gathers information based on the time, location and event. You can access this from Settings > Display > Ambient Display > Contextual Display.
There is a new blocking filter which lets you block spam messages using specific keywords. This is available at Messages > Spam > Settings > Blocking settings.
The Android 10 update for OnePlus 6 had initially been delayed due to a bug related to the fingerprint scanner, but it has been fixed already. Many users at the OnePlus forums have reported they have installed the update. The update has been rolling out in stages, so if you haven’t got the OTA yet, you may have to check for updates manually.
