These smartphones won’t receive MIUI 13.5


After launching MIUI 13 in China last December with the Xiaomi 12 series, the Chinese manufacturer has finally begun rolling out upgrades to global markets in early spring. This update brought new elements of widget settings, improved protection of personal data, even faster and smoother interface and, above all, better compatibility with tablets. And it seems that now is the time for the next version – MIUI 13.5.

Xiaomi has recently released a special version of MIUI 13, optimized for foldable smartphones, and is now preparing to release MIUI 13.5, an updated version with a sleight of new features. These features include new animations, news icons, new interface elements and a redesigned Control Center. There are also many software enhancements, such as improved battery management and increased performance.

Unfortunately, as with every update, Xiaomi will stop supporting some smartphones. For example, the Mi 9 series and an original Redmi Note 8 series will stay with MIUI 13. Here is a complete list of smartphones that will not receive MIUI 13.5 according to the information from the manufacturer:

  • Mi 9/9 SE/9 Lite/9 Pro
  • Mi 9T/Mi 9T Pro
  • Mi-CC9/Mi CC9 Meitu
  • Redmi K20/K20 Pro/K20 Pro Premium
  • Redmi Note 8/Note 8T/Note 8 Pro
  • Redmi-9A/9AT/9i/9C
  • POCO C3/C31

While it’s sad to see that these devices will no longer receive updates, it’s time for them to retire. As with latest versions of MIUI, the operating system is becoming more and more dependent on the Android version it is based on, and as these devices run older versions of Android, it is becoming increasingly difficult to adapt new features to this old Android base, so support has been discontinued.
