Xiaomi’s new MIUI 14 mobile operating system, based on Android 13, is said to be the most powerful, secure and integrated to date

News Summary:

  • Home screen content can be rearranged in any number based on the customization that suits you best, but share properties with new animated stickers, whether related to system, app or time changes. This seems like a lot for the device’s system. However, Xiaomi claims that it has addressed this potential issue through MIUI 14’s ‘Project Razor’ initiative.

  • Xiaomi kicked off its 13 and MIUI 14 events from today (December 11, 2022) and jumped directly into the final part of this title.The launch of this software is now in its 12th year, and its manufacturer has announced that this It claims to be the best and most compelling major upgrade ever. Xiaomi has overhauled his UI part of this skin based on his Android 13, with a layout based on a set of shapes (squiggles, circles, long pills).

It is rated to keep the OS as light as possible through measures such as extreme firmware and system requirement refinements; a reduced tolerance for uninstallable app counts; compressing “low-frequency” apps as much as possible and other memory savers such as, for example, saving only 1 copy of a duplicate file (all the while strongly implying that other OEMs do not go quite as far when developing their own takes on Android 13).

The software is rated for an updated paired-device interface in which each one can occupy its own ‘bubble’ on-screen, some of which (such as those for TWS earbuds) can be ‘dragged’ from one to another to switch their input. This feature exists alongside a card-like layout for Mijia product ecosystem integration. This allows all of a user’s connected or edge devices (from TVs to smart devices) to be displayed on one screen whenever possible, potentially streamlining home automation or on-device control.

Then again, part of Xiaomi’s new privacy- and security-related upgrades to MIUI 14 revolve around keeping things on-device rather than on the cloud for about 30 “system scenarios”, apparently iOS-rivalling OCR functions included. The OEM also claims to have attained multiple relevant certifications for data integrity in the process. Nevertheless, a user will clearly have no fear of losing connection with their accessories, smart home and home IoT devices on MIUI 14.

MIUI 14 aims to be as “human-centric” as possible in this way, potentially learning your specific smart home usage patterns to make its control even more user-friendly than before. Finally, the latest version of Xiaomi’s mobile software aims to be even more family and relationship friendly with updated shared photo albums, cloud and account settings.
