MIUI 11 20.3.17 beta brings authorization management feature

Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, does all it can to take care of its devices. At some points, it was one of the few companies that release updates for “very old” smartphones. Authorization and permission seeking apps are now a “problem” for many users and Xiaomi now has a better way of keeping user data safe. According to a netizen’s feedback, MIUI 11 20.3.17 beta is now available. This update specifically comes with “authorization management” features. The version number of the MIUI beta is MIUI 11 20.3.17 while the size of the update package is 116MB.
