[Discussion] Fix for Mi Apps auto-updating other apps (For users unable to find the Tools option in the Mi App)

Hello fellow Mi Users,

A lot of users have faced the issue of the Mi Apps application updating other applications. This is happening even though the Auto-Update option in the Google PlayStore is disabled. Mi Apps comes pre-installed on your device and is redundant, considering PlayStore already does the job, and there is no way to uninstall or disable it without rooting the device.

Please read on to find out how to disable the Auto-Update feature in the Mi-Apps application.

The Auto-Update feature can be disabled in the Tools section of the Mi Apps menu. A lot of users, including myself, found that the Tools option is not readily found in the Mi Apps application, even after updating the app to the latest version.

In order to get around this, please follow the steps below:

   1. Go to Settings on your phone and navigate to Apps.

   2. Search for Apps (which is the Mi Apps application) and click on it.

   3. Click on Uninstall Updates.

     4. You should see the earlier version of the application after this step.

   5. Click on Clear Data.

    6. Open the Mi Apps application now. You should see an option to install an update to the app. Install it.

   7. Go back to Settings -- Apps -- Apps, and clear data, as performed in step 5.

   8. Open the Mi Apps again, and this time, you should be able to see the Tools option.

   9. Go to Tools and navigate to Settings.

   10. Disable Auto-Update.  

    There you go, apps will no longer be auto-updated by the Mi Apps application!
