Xiaomi finally released the MIUI 12.5 at the Mi 11 launch event. this new version of MIUI will be based on android 11. According to what Xiaomi showcased, this new MIUI version comes with some of the most epic features you’ve ever seen in a Xiaomi smartphone. But make sure that most of the features are exclusive only to the premium devices so you might not see those features on your Redmi Note 9 once it arrives on your phone. The beta testing has been started and it’s a closed beta testing so only 21 devices were chosen to test the MIUI 12.5 beta. The beta builds will be available in mid-January of 2021. Now, let’s talk about the features of MIUI 12.
Firstly, of course, Xiaomi has made the MIUI 2.5 so it will enhance the performance of the devices. Xiaomi has completely redesigned the System UI so it would take 20% less RAM and made it so the background will consume less RAM too. And with the latest MIUI 12.5, you will be able to remove most of the system apps just like in apple’s recent iOS versions.
Xiaomi in MIU 12.5 has added two new locations to the earth version of super wallpaper. These are Greece shipwreck and Italy blade mountain. Apart from that, Xiaomi also released a new super wallpaper which is just like the dynamic wallpaper in macOS Mojave, this wallpaper changes according to the time of the day and looks amazing.
And there’s more, Xiaomi promised a new series of super wallpapers which are going to be released in the first half of the next year. BTW if you want these super wallpapers on your android phone then check out the videos to install super wallpapers on your Android smartphone.

Well if you don’t know, Xiaomi does care about the user’s privacy and added four new privacy features in MIUi 12.5. You got clipboard privacy protection so no other app can access your clipboard. The second is about positioning, it’s called Fusion Fuzzy Positioning in which MIUI 12.5 will give only an approximate location to the apps which do not need your precise location.
Xiaomi has added a layer of protection to your photos, so any app which has access to your phone’s storage will not be able to access your photos unless you give it that special permission from the settings which is amazing. Besides those, there are some enhanced privacy features in the browser and every app in Xiaomi’s App store.
Xiaomi added a whole new notes app which lets you do more than just typing or recording clip to make notes. You’ll be able to doodle on the notes and the app is optimized to work with your finger like you can create straight lines, circles and ever create brush strokes.
Cross border MIUI: MIUI+
Now this feature is pretty amazing and I’ve been waiting for a good feature like this for so long. This feature lets you kind of merge Windows 10 to your MIUI smartphone. With this feature, you’ll be able to see your phone’s notifications on your laptop, you can take a screenshot in the phone and share it directly to your laptop and even share web links between the laptop and your phone. Two apps work seamlessly between the smartphone and your laptop; one is a file manager app and the other is a note-taking app. These two apps are build so you can open them on your laptop and work on them and all the data will be saved on your phone so you can just grab your phone and move out without transferring any file.
More MIUI 12.5 Features
Now for some miscellaneous features, Xiaomi added new natural notification sounds which let you mix and match sounds to create customized notification tones for your device. Then there is the MIUI light cone dynamic architecture which makes the gestures and the animation more smooth and natural on your device. Then there is the natural touch feature which gives you a more realistic touch response on your MIUI 12.5 device and this feature lets the visually impaired people touch the information right through the tactile design.
These were the MIUI 12.5 features that you should look forward to when it will be out for your Xiaomi smartphone. But make sure that all the features listed here may not appear across all the devices running the MIUI 12.5 because Xiaomi has made some feature exclusive to flagship smartphones.
