All OnePlus wanted to do was show off its greatest phone ever on October 30. But no, big bad Apple had to come and ruin everything!

This week, Apple announced it has an event planned for October 30, which just so happens to be the unveiling date for the OnePlus 6T. Keep in mind, OnePlus has had this date secured since October 8. And because both events are scheduled to take place in NYC (Brooklyn for Apple, to be exact), OnePlus decided to avoid any awkwardness and has bumped up its launch date from October 30 to October 29.

October 29 is now OnePlus 6T day!

This is a portion of what Pete Lau told OnePlus fans.

As ambitious and passionate as we all are, we have to acknowledge the reality of this situation. There are no winners here. Over the course of almost 5 years, we have been proud to witness the rise of one of the most passionate and powerful communities in all of tech. But, we have to remain realistic. We have only just begun our journey and cannot afford to let one of the most important products in our history be affected by another great product launch. So after deep reflection, we have decided to move the OnePlus 6T Launch Event in New York City to October 29.

If you planned on attending this event and even got a hotel or flight, don’t worry, OnePlus says they are willing to, “cover any costs you might incur to change your plans.” That’s most generous of them, especially when they could’ve just kept the same date. I mean, it’s just an iPad/Mac event after all.

If anything, this is cool for the rest of us because we’ll see the phone one day earlier. Sweet!
