More and more information about the next version of Xiaomi’s proprietary add-on is appearing online. Recently, the company’s official account also confirmed that MIUI 13 is about to be announced. Let’s find out what the developers are excited about and which smartphones will receive the update.
Improved appearance and new features
The main changes will affect the design of the system. If leaks and early screenshots are to be believed, MIUI 13 will get a refined interface, new app icons and iOS-inspired widgets. Animations will be updated, themes, live wallpapers and smooth navigation gestures will be added.
Xiaomi will also provide users with the tools to create their own superlatives. These are dynamic animated screensavers of the desktop, which can replace each other automatically. This intention was announced by a representative of the developers in an interview with Mi Community.
One of the key features of MIUI 13 is virtual RAM expansion: part of the storage memory is used to increase the RAM capacity. The function can be activated in the settings. A monochrome power-saving preset will also be added, allowing the smartphone to last longer when the battery is low. And the proprietary Game Turbo utility, which speeds up games, will get a redesign.
In addition, the thirteenth firmware version will be updated in Always On Display mode. New fonts and design styles will become larger and more varied, as well as an option to control which notifications are displayed when the screen is turned off. A flight mode timetable function will be introduced and the notification system will be improved.
MIUI 13 is traditionally expected to offer improvements in performance, stability and security. The current version of MIUI 12.5 Enhanced has already done a lot of work in this direction. According to insiders, Xiaomi will continue to polish the firmware in the 13th shell to achieve the best possible user experience. Builds based on Android 12 will also get the features of the updated green robot.
