If you have already flashed any (newer) OxygenOS Open Beta firmware on OnePlus 3/3T, you’d be getting this update without any further ado. But keep in mind that once you flash this Open Beta firmware on OnePlus 3/3T, you will not be getting the official regular stable OTAs, that means, you may have to manually flash the newest stable firmware on the device.
