OnePlus wrote on their forum, “Our friends over at Cyanogen have informed us that CM 13.0 (ZNH0EAS26M) based on Marshmallow will drop starting tomorrow. The rollout will be staged so only some of you (random) will get it at first, and as always, patience is appreciated.”

CyanogenMod has posted some details about the new update and what users can expect in the CM13.0 which brings Android 6.0.1 to their smartphones. For starters, Cyanogen is implementing Android Marshmallow’s battery saving Doze mode along with the new permissions models to its OS. It should be noted that Cyanogen had an option to limit permissions for apps before Android natively introduced the same. For full details of what the new update brings, read more here.
