Xiaomi’s latest MIUI 7 was announced last week, and the global stable build is available for download starting today. Read on to find out what has changed in the company’s latest iteration of their MIUI interface as well as how to update your device.
Updating a Mi device can be done with a few methods. First, consumers can update their device over-the-air (OTA) using the Updater app on their phones. Second, consumers can also flash a recovery ROM which they would need to download from the MIUI downloads section. This method is a little risky and requires more effort but no to worry as the step-by-step guide can be found here. Not only that, consumers can also update their device using the Mi PC Suite. This method is probably the most efficient and secure way of updating a Mi device.
A lot of tweaks and upgrades have been made to the latest iteration of the MIUI interface, particularly in the aesthetics aspect. The update brings for new UI themes, along with home screen, lockscreen, status bar, and notification bar optimisation. In addition, there are other small changes like the real-time search function in file explorer and the “baby album” feature in the Gallery app. To check out the full changelog, click here.
Devices eligible for the MIUI 7 global update include the Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi Pad, Mi Note, Redmi 1S 3G, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi 2 and Redmi 2 Prime. Redmi Note 3G and Mi 4i users will have to hang in there a little longer as Xiaomi gets the update ready for their device.
