According to data, Xiaomi will release MIUI 12 updates to almost 50 brands of Xiaomi, Redmi and POCO phones starting June 2020. Let’s take a look and other features in Xiaomi latest operating system –
Dark Mode 2.0
The new version of Dark Mode in MIUI 12 will increase the ability to work with other apps, even if the app doesn’t have its own Dark Mode. In addition, it can also be set to automatically turn on Dark Mode according to the time of day. With the screen background gradually change to a more dull color, when the sun sets.
Show Data in Graph
MIUI 12 has changed the design of the information display of mobile phones to take easier than before by using images in graph form with data. For example, go to see how much memory space you have left or go to see how much longer the battery is working. Those data will be displayed in a graph for easier viewing.
The company add a cool features such as Super Wallpapers, 3D images of Earth and Mars, which use references from NASA. Its coolness is shown when we unlock the screen. Before unlocking the screen will show images of Mars in the distance that can be seen all. When we unlock the screen, the image will zoom in to the surface and when we open the screen, the surface of Mars will also slide along. For the world-shaped wiper, it has a beautiful landmark from all over the world to choose from as well.
Animation on the screen or Animation, such as rotating the screen, opening the app, dragging the app icon, plowing the screen, etc. will be completely redesigned in MIUI 12. For example, the movement of icons on the screen will be different out at the speed of our fingers or deleting the app Motion will occur with those around the app as well.
Wireless Image Cast System
Xiaomi latest OS adds cast feature to mobile screen images up to the TV screen. Whether it is video, images, games, documents apps and other apps. There is also a Private Casting feature that will show notification of messages or calls on the mobile screen only. Making you not having to be afraid that you are watching a movie on TV, then someone sent a message until everyone else saw it, not all is yet. There is a Minimized Window feature that will show the image on the TV screen only for the apps we selected, which on the mobile screen will be able to continue to use other apps.
Floating Window Feature
Increased convenience by using two apps on the same screen with Floating Window that display a small window of another app on the screen without having to exist the app that is currently in use. For example, we are using Instagram and playing with friends on Line, we can open the Line app in a small window. Stacked on the Instagram app to type a reply message and while also moving the window to any location on the screen.
Another benefit is, when we enter the game and the game requires a long time to load or an update, we can shrink the game into a small window. Then go out to the main screen to use other apps to kill the time, and when the game has finished loading, press to expand to full screen like before.
Battery Saving Mode, Ultra Battery Saver
For the power saving mode, Ultra battery saver will help extend the battery life even more. If the battery is at 5%, normally it cannot be used for less than 1mint, but if this mode is turned on, immediately will be able to extend the usage to 5 hours by disabling all backgrounds apps. While also changing to Dark Mode automatically (if you haven’t opened its first) and will open the apps you really need keep only which we can choose which apps to keep in this mode.
Improve Security and Privacy
In latest MIUI OS will improve security and more privacy to use when the camera, microphone or positioning function will occur on the mobile phone. (Whether we intend to keep it open or which apps are secretly enabled), there will be a notification icon in the top left corner of the screen that the camera, microphone or location is currently being identified is enabled which we can press to see which app is used and can click to close.
The company added new features to request access to various applications, for example, accessing the audio recording app, a window will pop up to asking for permission to access the microphone. But this time we can choose whether to allow forever, only allow when opening the app, must ask for permission every time before using or can be reject at all. As for sharing pictures that we filmed, there is still an option to share only images. Do not share location data that we take pictures or not sharing the image meta data.
