How to Install OxygenOS 13 Android 13 on OnePlus 10 Pro

Before installing the latest update, ensure your phone has at least 30% battery and 5GB of free internal storage. In a blog post, OnePlus mentioned that the carrier version devices are incompatible with these builds.

Another thing you need to keep in mind is that your device should have the latest OxygenOS 12 or OxygenOS 13 Open Beta. Here, it’s Open Beta 2/C.17. If you’ve already installed the OxygenOS 13 on your OnePlus 10 Pro, the build will reach your phone in the coming days.
