This is everything you need to know about the impending MIUI 14 upgrade

The most notable feature of MIUI 14 is its “reimagined homescreen,” which Xiaomi refers to as a catch-all phrase for new icon and folder customization.

Xiaomi may not be quick with software upgrades, but its MIUI Android skin continues to enjoy a significant fanbase in India. Despite initial expectations that the successor to MIUI 13 will be titled MIUI 13.5, that version has been completely omitted. Instead, the company will release MIUI 14 on February 27 in India, according to a tweet published on Thursday. Here is all the information you need about the next software skin.

Xiaomi has only announced that MIUI 14 will bring a “reimagined homescreen” to supported devices and will be the company’s “most optimised version to date.”

This possibly refers to the newly introduced Super Icons function. Super Icons offers per-icon customization on MIUI, let users to establish custom app icons. Icons can also be resized to span grid widths of 21, 12, and 22.

The changelog for a recently published MIUI 14 pilot test edition for the Xiaomi 12 Pro also reveals that home screen folders “will emphasise the apps you use most frequently, bringing them within a tap’s reach.” This refers to expanded folders that allow you to launch applications without first having to open folders.

The same changelog also noted that “MIUI now utilises less RAM and continues to be quick and responsive for significantly longer periods of time.” In the meantime, search has been updated to include search history and categories under Settings.

Aside from the aforementioned, nearly every new MIUI version to date has included a few new wallpapers, and MIUI 14 will likely be no exception. In its introductory tweet, Xiaomi also alluded to a “India-exclusive #ReadySteadySmooth experience”; however, the exact meaning of this is unknown.

We have not seen any indications that Material You would be implemented in MIUI 14, thus it is quite likely that the feature has been delayed for another year.

Xiaomi’s software update process remains as unclear as ever, making it difficult to predict which devices will receive the new update. The Product Support Policy Overview states that the corporation maintains security updates for two years, however some models are serviced for three years.

Based on this, the following list has been compiled. The list covers the names of devices that will probably certainly receive MIUI 14, but it is possible that others were overlooked. Note that MIUI 14 for your smartphone may or may not be based on Android 13.
