OnePlus 5 and 5T beta update removes 'infamous' Clipboard app, adds new gesture
OnePlus is testing new features for its latest flagship killers – the OnePlus 5 and 5T, so anyone who's part of the beta program can try them out. Also, the latest OxygenOS update addresses some issues and adds some under the hood improvements, OnePlus states.

But the most important change is the removal of the Clipboard app that caused so much ruckus among OnePlus users lately. Even though the Chinese company recently released a statement denying the Clipboard app sends data to China, it appears that OnePlus caved in under users pressure and decided to remove it completely.

Well, the change is only available for those who download the latest OyxgenOS open beta. Aside from the removal of the Clipoard app, OnePlus added a pick-up gesture switcher, which means you can now choose which way to slide (up or down) when you pick up a phone call.

Furthermore, the update contains a CPU security patch and a new SMS categorization feature specific to India, which auto-sorts SMS messages into categories.

Expect these new changes to be released to all OnePlus 5 and 5T devices very soon, but if you can't wait, you can always download the open beta build.
