How to Enable Always-On Display on OnePlus 6, 5T & 5

There are few smartphone features that we are used to it and want it in every next smartphone that we upgrade to, like double tap to wake up. The always-on display is a great feature and users like it a lot. Because most of the time a mobile phone is on the desk and not in a pocket.

OnePlus included always-on display feature in OnePlus 6 but they removed it in an update because of the battery consumption. This feature can be brought back using the Magick module. Since OxygenOS is almost similar in all device this feature can also bring to the OnePlus5T and OnePlus 5.
