Software updates are one of the important and expected events. Four months ago, MIUI 13 saw the light, which is gradually coming to Xiaomi devices. It was logical to assume that work on a new version of the proprietary shell is already underway and the next serial number for it is 14.
But instead of releasing a full-fledged version of the proprietary interface, the company will again resort to the practice with the previous iteration of MIUI and release an interim update – MIUI 13.5. It is known that work on MIUI 13.5 is actively underway and the logo for it is already ready. The image was leaked to the Xiaomiui resource. The publication even compared it to the MIUI 13 logo, noting the change in color scheme and the look of the number 3.
Xiaomi is preparing MIUI 13.5 and here is its official logo
We know little about MIUI 13.5 itself. According to network sources, developers will pay special attention to the simplicity and comfort of working with the device with one hand. In particular, they will change the location of system windows. They will now appear in the center of the screen so you can control them without touching the top of the display. The refresh rate menu, the display of applications in floating window mode, and the mode fonts in the camera interface will be redesigned.
All this is clearly not drawn to large-scale and serious changes. MIUI 13.5 will only become cleaner, more accurate, work on stability, smoothness and optimization. But all this will be more cosmetic. And the company may also refuse to distribute MIUI 13.5 to devices with Android 11.
Google will unveil in a few weeks at its annual Google I/O conference a new version of Android; called Android 13. Many smartphones will be eligible.
Android 13 is fast approaching. The first Developer Preview versions have been available for a few weeks now on Pixel smartphones; but we are still far from the deployment of the stable version; which will only arrive at the end of 2022. After Google I/O 2022, the American giant should make the first beta versions of Android 13 available on its Pixel smartphones, and other manufacturers should also make their devices compatible.
Only high-end models from manufacturers should be eligible. We can notably cite the Samsung Galaxy S22, the OnePlus 10 Pro, or the Xiaomi 12. However, manufacturers should be rolling out the final version; as soon as the end of the year to many of their newer devices.
