Xiaomi is quite good with system updates, however, it appears to pay all the attention to China. This has led to a series of complaints from MIUI global users. Global users want the company to make significant changes to its approach in the development of MIUI global version. One of the major challenges with the MIUI global version is the numerous bugs and errors. Furthermore, global users get watered-down firmware functionality. Thankfully, Xiaomi did not ignore the complaints from global users. The company acknowledges that there are problems with MIUI but fixing them will take time.
In other to calm the nerves of users, Xiaomi published a survey where it asked users to state their complaints. Apparently, the company is yet to properly understand the needs of its global users. However, this survey is no longer active as it was only open for two days (June 2 – June 4). In an attempt to solve some of users’ worries, MIUI released the 499th development version update notice. Based on user feedback, this version of the system will fix many bugs such as crashes, UI issues, and unlocking problems. The new version of the system will be pushed to Xiaomi and Redmi phones in the near future.

Furthermore, after unlocking the devices with a fingerprint, the system automatically jumps to the lock screen from a black screen. In addition, some users notice that after unlocking the device, the screen remains black. This update fixes these bugs.
Third-party apps sometimes display incorrect animations and the vibration/touch of the fingerprint sensor is sometimes misaligned. There appear to be multiple issues with the fingerprint sensor on Xiaomi smartphones. However, this update fixes most of them.
