The first stable release of MIUI 14, Xiaomi’s interface based on Android 13, is finally here. It is currently only available on the Xiaomi 12 in all regions of the world.
Android 13 is continuing to roll out thanks to updates to the interfaces of the various manufacturers. Xiaomi finally enters the race with a first stable version of MIUI 14, presented in China last month. So far, only one smartphone xiaomi is compatible: the Xiaomi 12. However, this is not the first Xiaomi model running Android 13: the manufacturer had published a beta of MIUI 13 based on Android 13 on his Xiaomi 12 Pro a few months ago, only on Chinese models.
MIUI 14 (Android 13) begins its deployment timidly
It is The Update Box who spotted the update of MIUI to its fourteenth version. This updated interface that moves to Android 13 is available to all users with a Xiaomi 12. It includes the novelties brought by MIUI 14, but also those brought by Android 13.
To access it, you must be registered in the Mi Pilot program. The deployment, if it is worldwide, remains progressive: all the owners of the smartphone in question do not all have the possibility of downloading the update for the moment. A priori, this should be the case in the next few days. Note that this is still a beta version: software bugs may be present and it is especially useful for application developers.
Xiaomi a little behind its competitors
What can be noted is that Xiaomi is lagging behind other manufacturers of Android smartphones. The big winner of the end of 2022 on this point is undoubtedly Samsung who rolled out the new version of One UI faster than in previous years.
But it’s not the only one: Oppo arrives with ColorOS 13, the Nothing phone (1) has moved to Android 13 everything like the Zenfone 9. OnePlus and Vivo are also in the game with their respective interfaces OxygenOS 13 and Funtouch OS 13. In view of all these updates to the latest version of Android, we can see that Xiaomi has fallen behind the competition.
