One of the most popular features among Xiaomi brand fans is the MIUI that allows users to have a worthwhile experience while using their handsets. MIUI 13 was recently presented during the Xiaomi 12 launch event and will replace MIUI 12.5. According to Xiaomi, it is the most improved version of its MIUI to date. It has focused primarily on privacy and security, while MIUI Pad and MIUI Fold are the major points of attraction. We’ve compiled a list of MIUI 13 most important features along with the system requirements, compatible devices, and instructions for installing the latest UI.
What are the criteria for MIUI 13 support?
The most important thing to understand is that these customization layers do not depend on the hardware setup of the device. It makes no difference if your phone is the most recent model or has a weak processor. It depends simply on whether your device is on the list of compatible devices that will receive the update to MIUI 13. You will get a complete list of compatible devices in the latter part of the article.
MIUI 13 features
MIUI 13 offers some fascinating upgrades that were not included in MIUI 12.5 (launched earlier this year). It includes privacy and security updates, dynamic widgets, super wallpapers, Customizable AI virtual assistant, Mi magic center, and so on. However, the primary attractions are the MIUI 13 pad, MIUI 13 fold, and the new typeface MiSans.
The following are the important features of MIUI 13:
- MiSans font: This newest UI includes a new font that users may download and use on their devices for free. MiSans is a Sans- serif typeface that simplifies letters, signs, and numerals. It is also more symmetric in terms of spacing and character design.
- Dynamic widgets and wallpapers: The MIUI 13 phones will get new wallpaper options due to collaboration between the firm and Beauty of Science for the next batch of wallpapers. The widgets have also been changed for improved grid organization.
- Privacy and security: The MIUI 13 will provide security in three levels. The first of which includes an enhanced face recognition system in which the entire body of the user is scanned and not just the face. People with different body structures are not able to access the device even if their faces are similar. The second is a watermark option that the user can choose while scanning crucial papers. Thirdly it will alert the user to spam calls/messages, malware websites, and dangerous file transfer.
- Optimizations: Xiaomi has claimed that the fluency of system applications and third-party applications will be improved by 20-25% and 15-52% respectively.
- Mi Magic center: Users will be able to control all of their Xiaomi devices from a single location with the Mi Magic center, which will also allow them to label different devices with different stickers for easier identification.
- Customizable Xiao AI Virtual Assistant: Users in China will be able to create their own Xiao AI avatar from a selection of more than 50 dress and accessory combinations. They will also be able to select from a variety of voices and a personalized wake word.
MIUI 13 Pad and MIUI 13 Fold
The most astonishing feature of MIUI 13 is that it will be available for other devices as well. While the MIUI pad was introduced earlier this year, this version has brought some substantial modifications and additions, which are detailed below:
- Multitasking: Now users will be able to simultaneously use multiple applications with the help of floating windows feature provided.
- Synchronization of devices: Now we can run the Xiaomi devices in synchronization with each other and thus we can continue to do our work in the tablet which was left off in mobile or vice versa.
- Keyboard: Now the users will be able to set custom shortcuts or select default shortcuts in keyboards.
- Stylus: The users can now take Notes and screenshots while working on any applications using stylus feature.
- Application supports: Xiaomi has claimed that now 3000 applications will support the MIUI 13 Pad.
