Recently, Xiaomi MIUI released the “MIUI System Development Edition Strategy Adjustment Instructions” in a forum. As the document claims, some new models will be discontinued to develop the beta version.
According to the document, Xiaomi says that since July 5, 2019, the open beta time of the MIUI development version has been adjusted to one year. And products that have been released for more than one year ago will gradually withdraw their authority.
