When Xiaomi launched its latest smartphone – Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth 5G and one of its greatest highlight was MIUI 12 android skin. It brings some really exciting features and changes. So I’m gonna tell you all Xiaomi, Redmi phones that will get MIUI 12 update.
1. Amazing wallpaper
The biggest highlight of MIUI 12 is the super wallpapers. These wallpapers have been inspired from Mars and Earth and as you can see they look really pretty awesome.
When you unlock a MIUI 12 phone with the mask wallpaper, you will find a cool animation. You can enjoy these animations even when you’re just scrolling between the pages.
There’s better data visualization all across. Take a look at the about page, the storage page and the Mi account page.
They all show certain data which is beautifully visualized. Even in the settings page the battery graphed page looks more modern.
MIUI 12 brings better smoother animations all across platform. It’s basically an animation for everything for example take a look at the quick settings page.
So this is how it looks like when you turn on the different toggles. That’s nice and kind of iOS like. Even when the Wi-Fi is connected you get this really subtle yet nice animation. Most importantly though the app opening and closing animations have been improved. This is nice and these animations remind me a little of iOS’s user interface.
3. Better Gestures
One thing I did not really like MIUI gestures is the fact it did not support androids native gesture of switching between apps. That changes is missing with MIUI 12.
In MIUI 11 full screen gestures have refined animation and there’s a lengthy bar at the bottom. With the help of this bar you can swipe up to go to home screen, swipe up and hold to recent apps and flick right or left to switch between apps. I hope they have.
4. Dark Mode 2.0
MIUI’s dark mode looks great with all the colors splashed over the black UI and MIUI 12 is making dark mode even better.
Dark Mode 2.0 in MIUI 12 works with almost every single app out there. It’s improved MIUI 12 is said to improve readability and reduce eyestrain while using the dark mode. The wallpaper dimming feature will dynamically adjust the color temperature of your wallpaper.
5. Privacy Features
MIUI 12 update brings three new privacy features on board. These are – Flare, Barbed wire and Mask system.
So taking it one by one, flair will keep track of the behavior of all apps present on your phone and bring your list of apps that may be violating privacy or building permissions
Barbed wore improves on androids permissions manager and this will make sure that an app won’t show the always allow button for the location of camera permission if the app does not specify what it requires the permission.
Mask system is a feature similar to Realme you eyes and Color OS 7’s personal information protection feature. The Mask system feature that comes with MIUI 12 update, will basically mask your personal info and bring a blank info in an app that requires it to share with them.
6. Mi Health
Xiaomi’s new Mi Health app is officially live. With MIUI 12 update and Mi Health app, all you need is your phone with you to track your steps workouts and more. So the app will send you reminders and will be able to monitor your sleep. It works without a fitness tracker. All you need to do is place your phone on your pillow while sleeping and it will track your sleep.
7. Global Free Window
Lot of people are complaining that smartphones are getting bigger and bigger. It is a kind of inconvenient to use large smartphone. MIUI 12’s Global Free Window solves this problem. With the help of this window feature you can run almost every app in the form of small window. It is a little similar to the Samsung’s pop-up view feature.
With this you can even minimize the window to the side. So there’s a lot of features to improve your experience woth Xiaomi smartphones.
