Install USB drivers for OnePlus 2 on your Windows/MAC system. OnePlus 2 follows on the original OnePlus One, if you haven’t guessed it by now. This phone brings some key changes to the phone. An exciting feature is the USB-C port found on the bottom of the phone. Yes, this phone is the first to sport this new USB standard. Bringing us back to the topic, OnePlus 2 requires correct USB drivers to work properly with your computer. Fortunately, there is a single package which needs installation to complete the process. This way, your computer will correctly recognize your phone and it’s details allowing for other programs to take advantage. Our full guide on installing OnePlus 2 USB drivers is given below.
Once done with installing the USB drivers, you can rest in the fact that every time you connect your phone your PC will realize it correctly. For the loyal users out there, they might remember the USB Mass storage functionality which basically made your phone a USB once enabled. Well, that has been replaced due to obvious security concerns. However, the new versions do support “Media device (MTP)” which allows you to add or remove files from your internal storage. MTP drivers are always included with the stock Android phone software. ADB drivers and Fastboot drivers will need to be downloaded from the Android SDK. We have an entire section full of Android USB Drivers, but we have that covered as well for you below on how to download and install the drivers.

Like we said, the USB drivers for OnePlus 2 are always bundled with MotorolaKIES or MTP drivers are part of the Android 4.4 KitKat / Android 5.0 Lollipop software that comes with the phone.
