After updating, you should find an “optimized” experience in your full-screen gestures, more success when using the fingerprint reader, a new keyboard height adjustment feature, optimized image quality for nightscape shots, and the November security patch.
OnePlus is also looking out for fixing a WiFi connection failed bug and improving the “stability of communication.”
The full OnePlus 8T update changelog is as follows:

Overall, the update seems considerably good for an end-of-year build. To check for it, you have to head into Settings>System>System updates. If you aren’t seeing it right away, it may be because of the fact that OnePlus often slow rolls these out.
