Xiaomi launched its latest version of MIUI last year in December. MIUI 13 did not bring any major improvements or features over the previous version of MIUI, MIUI 12.5. MIUI 13 let down several users as it did not meet their expectations. Users are now waiting for the next version of MIUI to bring some cool new features and improvements to MIUI. The next version of MIUI could be either MIUI 14 or MIUI 13.5. In this article, we will talk about MIUI 14’s release date.
Update November 28: MIUI 14 will be released on December 1, 2022, along with Xiaomi 13 series. The event is scheduled for Thursday, December 1, at 7 PM (Beijing time). Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro will be the first models to run the MIUI 14 custom skin.
MIUI 14 Features:
As of now, we do not have any official information regarding the features of MIUI 14. We can expect a new and improved control centre, new lock screen, new wallpaper system, improved multitasking experience, better overall system stability, better battery efficiency and customization options. With MIUI 14, Xiaomi will reportedly remove its ads. Xiaomi users may get rid of bloatware and pre-installed apps.
Ahead of the debut of MIUI 14, some alleged MIUI 14 screenshots have been leaked online, revealing some of its features.
Here is the list of MIUI 14 features:
- MIUI 14 adds a text recognition feature so that you can quickly copy the text from images and photos.
- A new Gallery app feature, “On this day”, shows you memories of the previous year.
- Disable notifications permanently directly from the Notification shade.
- Anti-fraud protection is added to filter calls, messages, and apps.
- It brings Bluetooth LE Audio support.
- Clock and Assistant redesigns.
MIUI 14 Release Date:
- MIUI 14 will be released on December 1, 2022.
Xiaomi may be planning to release a 13.5 version of MIUI just like MIUI 12.5. MIUI 13.5 will bring incremental improvements over MIUI 13, which disappointed many users. A couple of months after the release of MIUI 13.5, Xiaomi may release MIUI 14. There is no official information from Xiaomi regarding the release date of MIUI 14. However, we can predict its release date based on the release dates of previous versions of MIUI.
If we look at Xiaomi’s past release dates of MIUI versions, we can see an 8-12 months gap between each new version of MIUI. To elaborate, MIUI 12 was released in April 2020 and exactly eight months later, MIUI 12.5 was released in December 2020. One year later, MIUI 13 was announced by Xiaomi in December 2021. If Xiaomi follows the same pattern, then we can expect them to release MIUI 13.5 first and then MIUI 14.
We can expect MIUI 13.5 to release in November 2022. However, if Xiaomi ever plans to ditch the idea of MIUI 13.5 and directly release MIUI 14, then we can witness its release by the end of 2022 or early 2023.
Xiaomi 13 series is expected to go official in December 2022. Both models may ship with the MIUI 14 based on Android 13 OS. Reportedly, Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro have been undergoing internal MIUI tests (the beta builds are being tested internally). This suggests Xiaomi may announce MIUI 14 alongside the upcoming Xiaomi 13 series.
MIUI 14 Supported Devices:
MIUI 14 will be seen in a large number of phones across the Xiaomi family of Mi, Redmi and Poco. Talking about MIUI 14 supported devices, Redmi K50 series, Xiaomi 12 series, Xiaomi 11 series, Xiaomi 12T series, Redmi Note 11 series, POCO F3 GT, and several 2021-2022’s handsets will receive the MIUI 14 update. Xiaomi will also offer the MIUI 14 update to select old devices.
