After announcing a new OnePlus 6T update over the weekend, T-Mobile began pushing it out widely today. Unfortunately, it looks like it’s got a pretty significant bug.
Many T-Mobile OnePlus 6T owners are reporting that after installing the A6013_34_181228 update, their device shows that it’s not longer Play Protect certified. This can cause some issues with the apps on the device, including preventing Google Pay from working.
Neither T-Mobile nor OnePlus have commented on this issue yet. While there are some T-Mobile OnePlus 6T owners that say that they’re not affected by this problem, there are quite a few who are suffering from the problem, so hopefully a fix can be made soon.
If you’ve got a T-Mobile OnePlus 6T, have you encountered this bug?
UPDATE: T-Mobile reached out to me to confirm that this issue has been resolved:
“The issue with Google Pay and Google Play Protect on OnePlus has been resolved. Customers may need to re-verify their payment information – if so, they will see an automatic prompt in Google Pay. For further assistance, contact our support team here.”
