Last month, Xiaomi officially released its next-generation custom Android skin — MIUI 11 and has already started rolling out the new update to compatible devices. The company has revealed the roadmap for the phased rollout of this new version of MIUI for Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones.
After rolling out MIUI 11 for the first batch of devices, the company has now started offering the new stable version update to its second batch of devices in China in which Xiaomi has listed 15 devices.
The list smartphones in the second batch which is scheduled to receive the new MIUI 11 stable version includes Mi 9 Pro 5G, Mi 6, Mi MIX 2, Redmi Note 7, Mi CC9 Mito Customized Edition, Mi 9, Redmi K20 Pro, Mi CC9, Redmi K20 Pro Premium Edition, Redmi Note 6 Pro, Mi Note 3, Redmi Note S2, Redmi Note 5A Standard Edition, Redmi Note 5A High Edition, and Redmi 7A.
In the first batch, the company had rolled out the update for twelve devices, which included Mi 9 Pro 5G, Mi 9 SE, Mi Mix 3, Mix 2s, Mi 8, Mi 8 Youth Edition, Mi 8 Explorer Edition, Mi 9 In-Display Fingerprint scanner variant, Mi 8 SE, Mi Max 3, Redmi K20, Redmi Note 7 Pro, and Redmi 7.
To recall here are some of the features that MIUI 11 introduces:
New Icons and smoother animations: With the latest MIUI 11, Xiaomi has tweaked the look of the icons found in the UI and they now have a minimalist yet appealing look. The company has also tweaked the animations which are slower in comparison to MIUI 10 but they now provide for a rich and immersive experience.
Ultra Power Saving Mode: As the name suggests, this mode is meant for prolonging battery life when running out of charge. According to the company, while in this mode, a device can provide a battery backup of upto 24 hours with just 5% of battery. When this mode is turned on, the device turns off the Wi-Fi module, hides non-essential apps, turns the display colour to black/white whilst restricting background processes.
Kids Mode: This mode is meant for parents who want to create a safe digital environment for their kids. While in kids mode, the device will only be able to run applications that are whitelisted by their parent or guardian. Besides, it also has an education space which Xiaomi claims is an intuitive manner to teach young kids.
Digital Wellbeing: With this feature, device owners will be able to check how much time they spend on each application and if needed they can cut down the usage time in order to maintain a healthy mental and physical well-being.
Earthquake alerts: With the help of data provided by regional offices, devices running MIUI 11 can notify its owner in case of an ongoing earthquake or after one takes place. Moreover, it will also provide additional details like nearby relief centres and places to avail medical service in case of a mishap.
Casting to external display: This feature will allow smartphones running on MIUI 11 to wirelessly cast onscreen content which includes games, videos, documents and other applications to TV, given the TV also supports this functionality. Xiaomi has thoughtfully designed this feature so users can even hide personal items to keep all sensitive things private. Moreover, the device can continue to cast even when its display has been turned off
