According to a report by Android Police, Cyanogen is going to lay off some of their staff and they may change their business model.
Cyanogen originally started out as the Android ROM CyanogeMod and it has received investment of around $80 million previously and its aim was to get Android smartphone makers to use its OS.
OnePlus previously launched a smartphone with CyanogenMod installed, although their recent devices have come with their own OS.
The company has round 136 staff at the moment and roughly 30 of these people have apparently lost their jobs, so around 20% of the workforce.
The company may now pivot from building its OS for manufacturers to building apps instead. There has not been any official statement as yet from Cyanogen.
Updated 26th July 2016
The company has said that it is not pivoting to apps and will continue to concentrate on developing their CyanogenMod OS.
