Google is currently getting ready to release the next big Android operating system which is the Android 14. The company has released a couple of Beta testing versions which include the recent Beta 2.1. Since many phone manufacturers rely on Android as their base operating system, most of them are also preparing to launch their own Android 14 versions on their respective smartphones. That being said, Xiaomi is also preparing to launch the MIUI 15 based on Android 14 on all supported devices.
Xiaomi’s MIUI software runs on Xiaomi device including two other sub brands in the name of Redmi and POCO devices. As we anticipate the release of Xiaomi’s MIUI 15, rumors have surfaced regarding its release date, supported devices, and potential features.
MIUI 15 Rumored Release Date
The official release date for MIUI 15 has not been announced yet. However, we expect the Chinese company to reveal the OS during Xiaomi’s presentation in 2023. Recent speculation suggests that the new operating system will be released in December 2023. Official announcements from Xiaomi will provide the accurate release information once it becomes available.
Xiaomi has traditionally followed a one-year update cycle for MIUI. However, the timing of their releases has varied in the past, occurring in spring, summer, or autumn. With the introduction of MIUI 12.5, Xiaomi developers have adopted a different approach to testing and releasing updates to the MIUI shell. As a result, the specific timeline and process for future MIUI updates may have changed. Therefore, it is recommended to consult Xiaomi’s official announcements for the most up-to-date information.

Xiaomi Could Release MIUI 15 by the End of 2023
Based on the release patterns of MIUI 13 and MIUI 14, it is reasonable to speculate that MIUI 15, could be introduced towards the end of 2023. However, it’s important to note that assumptions based on previous release dates may not always align with future plans. The official announcement from Xiaomi regarding the release date of MIUI 15 will provide the most accurate information. Until then, it is advisable to wait for the official confirmation from Xiaomi regarding the timing of the new OS version.
Traditionally, Xiaomi tends to unveil the Chinese version of the MIUI operating system during the first presentation in December. Afterwards, global models of Xiaomi smartphones receive the update. The update rollout typically begins with flagship devices, followed by midrange smartphones. Budget phones usually receive the update last. This sequence of updates allows Xiaomi to prioritize their higher-end devices before extending the update to the affordable models. However, it’s important to note that specific release timelines and device eligibility may vary. As we have stated already, it’s always best to refer to official announcements from Xiaomi.
Currently, MIUI 15 is under a testing phase. If all goes according to plan, the company may soon roll out the first Beta. With regards to this, we expect the first Beta to start rolling out in September or October.

Xiaomi, Redmi, and POCO typically provide updates for their devices for a period of 2-3 years. As MIUI 15 is expected to launch in 2023, it is likely to be compatible with all 2023 devices. Additionally, many models that have already received firmware updates based on Android 13 are also expected to receive the MIUI 15 update. However, the specific list of devices eligible for the MIUI 15 update will be announced by Xiaomi at a later date. It is recommended to refer to official announcements or Xiaomi’s official website for the most accurate information on device compatibility and update availability.
Xiaomi has published information about device support list in advance on its website. The Xiaomi EOS List has outlined the list of models that will support Android 14. It is worth noting that MIUI 14 does not support Android 14. Therefore, all devices that support Android 14 should be compatible with Xiaomi’s MIUI 15.
