In addition to the flagship Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, the CyberDog robot, and the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series tablets, the company introduced MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition on Tuesday. This is an improved version of the proprietary interface, which the company’s flagship models will receive this month. The main focus was on optimization rather than introducing new features.
Today it became known that in MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition, the manufacturer has proposed a new system of widgets in the style of iOS. It is currently being tested on the Chinese version of the user interface and can be tested by users who participate in the beta testing program and have installed the App Vault (V5.0.56) and MIUI Gallery (V2.2.21). Currently, these app versions can only be installed on devices with the MIUI beta build based on Android 11.
Users can now place widgets with sizes 2×2, 4×2, 4×4 and 2×3 on the home screen. A new “Widget Store” has appeared; with the help of which users can place widgets of their choice anywhere on the screen. There are also new system application widgets.
Between 17 August and 20 October, the company will test the widget system. This suggests that the release of a stable build, especially the global version; will have to wait several months to test the new feature.

In addition to the flagship smartphone Mi Mix 4, tablet computers Mi Pad 5 and Mi Pad 5 Pro, as well as the CyberDog robot, the Chinese company Xiaomi has introduced MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition – an improved version of the proprietary shell based on Android. This month it will be available to users of Mi Mix 4, Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11, Mi 10 Ultra, Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10, Mi 10S, as well as Redmi K40, Redmi K40 Pro, Redmi K30S Supreme Anniversary Edition and Redmi K30 Pro.
MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition didn’t get any new features. Instead, it underwent significant optimization, in which the developers made 160 system-level fixes; as well as 224 fixes to the work of applications; thereby solving a lot of problems that were reported through user feedback channels. “Today we are not releasing any new features, but together we are showing you the result and the progress that has been achieved in optimizing the system over the past six months,” Xiaomi said in a statement.
According to reports, in MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition, developers focused on improving the smoothness of the user interface; reducing power consumption, and optimizing system functions. Already this month, the improved MIUI 12.5 will be available to users of the previously mentioned devices. It is possible that later Xiaomi will expand the list of compatible devices.
