People are buying what OnePlus and T-Mobile are selling – the lines for the OnePlus 6T in front of the carrier’s stores were longer than those for the new iPhones (according to a T-Mo employee quoted by Business Insider).

T-Mobile’s version of the OnePlus 6T has consistently been receiving software updates at a different (read:later) pace than the unlocked model. Today a new one has started making its way to those units sold by the magenta carrier. It’s a 110MB download that enables activating the Google Assistant by holding the power button for 0.5s.
