The latest version of MIUI, the most popular customized interface in the Android world, was released on April 27. Xiaomi continues to make MIUI improvements to maintain its popularity and to the satisfaction of its customers. Many innovations that will come in MIUI 12.1 are being tested in Beta. Some features whose interface and animations have not been adapted to MIUI 12 will be corrected with MIUI 12.1.
MIUI 12.1 Innovations
New fingerprint animations
Most new phones now come with an under-screen fingerprint. Xiaomi has added new fingerprint animations to make MIUI 12 more customizable by users. You can also get more animation from Themes app.
When entering your password, others can see the combination order even if they don’t see the numbers. Xiaomi eliminates this situation by adding a very effective feature. The order of numbers changes every time you open and close the lock screen. This makes it impossible for others to see the combination.
The interface of the application case has been renewed too much, but it is not liked by the users. Xiaomi has renewed the interface of the application case again, taking into account the users. White backgrounds have been renewed in iOS style. At the top are non-removable application shortcuts. Below it are small bubbles like pedometer. You can customize its order.
It is much easier to check the status of other cities in the new weather application. This convenience is supported by a new animation.
Always On Display
MIUI 12 adds another revolutionary innovation to the AOD feature. You will have the option to hide some items such as battery status, notifications, step counts.
Accessibility settings had a lot of settings and it could be quite difficult to find options. Xiaomi has added sections to this menu, making it easy to find the feature you want.
