Note that the second batch of devices to get MIUI 12.5 stable update will commence receiving the same at the end of May 2021. [Source]
Update as of April 2: Xiaomi has came a long way with its MIUI updates. The MIUI 12 marks the onset of one of the loved UI although it had its share of drawbacks and issues such as bloatware and ads. WIth MIUI 12.5 which comes as an upgrade to MIUI 12 and a bridge to MIUI 13, it is without much hassle one of the best UI as said by Xiaomi Global VP Manu Kumain Jain. When asked if MIUI 12.5 will have ads, Jain mentioned that it won’t come with any ads in India.
Apart from that, he mentioned that it will be the cleanest UI in India which is a bold move as MIUI 12 has largely been associated with system ads and bloatware. It remains to be seen as to when MIUI 12.5 arrives in India since it has already rolled out on a couple of devices in China. [Source]
Update as of April 2: There’s some misunderstanding when it comes to Mi Stable ROM Tester program as people are misunderstanding it as MIUI 12.5 Beta Tester program. Turns out all the beta programs that Xiaomi is running outside China are based on MIUI 12 and not MIUI 12.5 since the latter is available in China only at this moment. Also, when Xiaomi rolls out a Beta or Stable ROM Tester program for any smartphone, it is specific to that particular model. If the program is available for Mi 9T, it will be available on Mi 9T only since its Pro variant is a different model. This was recently confirmed by a moderator on Mi Community. You can read the post here.
Update as of April 1: Well, turns out Xiaomi has finally released the list of selected participants for the second batch of its MIUI Stable Testers program in China. Here’s the link to the list.
Update as of March 30: According to the latest update, the MIUI 12.5 beta with version number 21.3.25 and 21.3.29 have been released with a ton of bug fixes and more. It includes overall system stability as well as issues causing the system to restart in certain scenarios. The incoming update also comes adapted for models Redmi K30, Redmi K20, and Mi CC9 Pro. [Source 1, 2]
Update as of March 29: Xiaomi has finally released MIUI 12.5 stable version in China and the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra has become the first recipient of the same. This goes in line with Xiaomi’s promise to release MIUI 12.5 stable version in April and in fact, it released the version a few days early this time around. Note that the stable version is avamilable in China only and thus, global users will have to wait for the rollout. It is expected to arrive globally in Q2 2021 i.e. between April and June 2021 although the exact dates aren’t available. Also, more Mi 10 series devices in CHina will join the MIUI 12.5 stable version update soon.
Update as of March 27: Xiaomi follows a very robust system of bug fixes, new features addition and more via its nightly, fortnightly and other software updates. It uses the Chinese ROM open beta testing program to test out new features in China available to a limited number of users before rolling out on global ROMs as a finished product. However, this could introduce a lot of delay in the rollout process. After shutting out its global ROM open beta testing program, it has kick-started it again to mitigate the delay in features arrival.
Xiaomi recently kick-started Mi Tester Recruitment for the MIUI India Stable ROM where users can apply to get their hands on the bleeding edge features even before the stable versions get their hands on it. With that, Xiaomi has recruited 26 devices that can apply for the Indian best testing version and they can sign up using this link.
The list includes Mi 10, Mi 10i, Mi 10T/10T Pro, Redmi K20/K20 Pro, Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 9 Pro/Max, Redmi Note 9, Redmi 9/9 Prime/9A/Power, Redmi 8/8A/8A Dual, Redmi Note 8, Redm Note 10 Pro/Pro Max, Poco C3, Poco M3, Poco M2/M2 Pro, X2, Poco X3, and Poco F2 Pro. Note that Xiaomi has also stated that if your model isn’t included in this list, a next cycle of recruitment process will include more models in the list.
Update as of March 12: Well, Poco is currently running as a standalone company from Xiaomi with MIUI and receives timely updates for the same as well. Talking about the next update in line i.e. MIUI 12.5, here’s a list of eligible smartphones that will get MIUI 12.5 although take it with a pinch of salt. Devices running on MIUI 12 or those that arrived with MIUI 12 out-of-the-box are most likely eligible for MIUI 12.5 and the list includes these models.
- Poco X3
- Poco X3 NFC
- Poco C3
- Poco F2 Pro
- Poco X2
- Poco M2
- Poco M3
- Poco M2 Pro
Note that upcoming devices that haven’t been released at the time of writing this aren’t mentioned here.
Update as of March 10: Poco phones are not in sight to get their hands on Poco UI just like how Xiaomi has MIUI. Instead, Poco phones still use MIUI even though the former parted ways with Xiaomi to go solo. Anyways, Poco has kick-started “POCO Stable Tester for MIUI Global Stable ROM” which allows selected users of selected smartphones from Indian, European, and global MIUI ROMs to get their hands on the MIUI builds before the company rolls it out to other users as a public update. Users are required to register and note that only Poco F2 Pro, Poco X2, and Poco M2 users are eligible to sign up and that too with global, European, and Indian variants.
As mentioned, the recruitment will stay alive till March 31 after which POCO will start rolling the MIUI update as a part of its global stable ROM tester program. Note that we aren’t certain if it will be an Android 11 since X2 and F2 Pro already run on it while MIUI 12 is actively running on all three of them. This means it could be MIUI 12.5 although let’s cross fingers before jumping to any conclusions. You can submit your registrations here. [Source]
Update as of March 03: Lastly, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi was searching for applicants for its MIUI pilot testing program which closed on March 1 and this is the time to roll out the list of who made it. It is not about MIUI 12 since it is already available so we are talking about the official MIUI 12.5 update rollout for the global markets.
According to the latest update, the first batch of smartphones that will get their hands on MIUI 12.5 is in early Q2 2021 i.e. between April to June. As of now, MIUI 12.5 beta testing program was rolled out in China alone since Xiaomi doesn’t roll out the update across the globe but rather starts with China and then, propagates to the global users. The most weight is on Android 11-powered MIUI 12.5 update but the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has kept mum.
Xiaomi has released the list of applicants who have successfully made it to the MIUI Pilot Testing Program (for Android 11 and MIUI 12.5) is here. This includes smartphones from Mi, Redmi, and POCO series among all regions and ROM types. [Source]
Update as of February 24: Xiaom halted the development of beta updates for more than two weeks following Chinese New Year holidays. It has been just a few days and the Chinese smartphone maker has already released two beta updates and here, we are tracking the third beta update i.e. MIUI 12.5 21.2.23. This latest update arrives on Chinese devices soon and brings a lot of changes and improvements to the Gallery app. This includes optimizing the performance of albums in the Gallery app as well as the display effect that users get when taking a screenshot. Xiaomi has also enhanced parameters of editing images such as vignetting and natural saturation giving them a negative adjustment option as well.
Update as of February 23: Just as we were seeing MIUI V21.2.19 release after a 15-days of break because of the Chinese New Year holidays, Xiaomi has silently released yet another update with MIUI 12.5 beta V21.2.22. Xiaomi releases beta updates quicker than other OEMs and with the new update coming in, there are a few improvements as well.
This includes a picture viewing mode by long-pressing the webpage picture to enter. Another update includes the “Reject and Don’t Ask Again” option that users will get in the QUick App Permission pop-up box. Xiaomi has also optimized web clipboard permissions and now it supports query options. There’s a bug fix that caused text display on pop-up windows to not align in the center.
Xiaomi has removed the “Hide and move status bar” option which is somehow not mentioned in the initial changelog. Further, the MIUI 12.5 21.2.22 has made some tweaks to the WLAN Assistant UI that you can check out here. [Source]
Update as of February 23: Xiaomi halted the rollout of MIUI 12.5 closed beta development due to the Chinese New Year holidays. Xiaomi has finally resumed the update process after a gap of almost two weeks on February 22 for the beta builds while the MIUI 12 stable releases were as planned with the latest arriving on February 18. Xiaomi has released MIUI 12.5 beta release with firmware version number 21.2.19 which is based on the date when the MIUI 12.5 beta update arrived. The new update arrives with an improved security update starting with Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 4G and Redmi Note 7. With the latest beta update zeroing in, it brings a lot of new improvements such as a smooth animation on gesture pill. [Source]
Update as of February 13: Xiaomi Redmi 9T wasn’t included in Xiaomi’s MIUI 12.5 rollout plan. However, as a moderator on Mi Community has mentioned, Redmi 9T was launched just last month and Xiaomi is still to add more devices that will get MIUI 12.5 soon. Thus, even if Redmi 9T is not included, it will support MIUI 12.5. Note that we aren’t aware of the timeline as of now so you will have to check back later to know Redmi 9T’s MIUI 12.5 update status. [Source]

Update as of February 1: So, if you are a Poco F1 user waiting for the MIUI 12.5 update, this news is for you. Apparently, when a user inquired when exactly he will get the MIUI 12.5 update on his Poco F1, Alvin Tse who is the GM at Xiaomi Indonesia responded that the Poco F1 will get future updates but he isn’t sure about MIUI 12.5. As this is coming from a General Manager at Xiaomi, his words are to be taken seriously and thus, if you are a Poco F1 user, there are little hopes that it will ever get MIUI 12.5 but don’t just give up. We will update you more about it soon. [Source]
Update as of January 23: Well, Xiaomi created a lot of buzz around its MIUI 12.5 and the latest feature on Gaussian blurring image processing technique. Well, the feature blurs UI elements though the interface that looks pretty appealing. The MIUI 12.5 beta 21.1.19 now brings the Gaussian Blue back onto the MIUI 12.5 bild as users can spot the same on volume control and notifications’ background. Note that the new feature is available on smartphones running on Snapdragon 855 at the moment given the fact that Gaussian Blur is too resource intensive. Expect it to other devices in the future builds. [Source]
Update as of January 20: Xiaomi released the MIUI 12.5 beta v21.1.15 with a tonne of new updates. It brings a new feature called “magic cline freeze-frame” on its new camera mode and yes, there’s a nice brightness slider on the control center available at your disposal as well.

Note that this version is available in China at the moment and thus, may not work on other ROMs. [Source]
Update as of January 19: MIUI 12 is an uber successful custom skin from Xiaomi released last year and it is still receiving feature upgrades and updates here and there. The MIUI 12.5 adds to the list as a feature-grabbing custom skin and a stepping stone towards upcoming MIUI 13. Talking about the new features added with MIUI 12.5, the v21.1.15 Closed China beta update has now received a new feature called “Magic clone freeze frame mode” on the MIUI Camera app. The feature grabs frames of users or objects in a video similar to a filter available on the internet.

Update as of December 30: MIUI 12.5 is incoming and it will bring a bootload of features and more on-board. According to Xiaomi, MIUI 12.5 is optimized to consume 20 percent less memory and 17 percent less power consumption. The various set of features includes a Super Wallpaper which consumes 40 percent less power.
MIUI Light Cone architecture offers a crucial role in reducing both power consumption and overall memory usage. It also provides a Turbo gesture feature that promises a smooth response without lagging. Next up, we have an updated MIUI Sound Design that offers more than 100 notification sounds and system sounds of creatures from across the world. The haptics have been improved for better use experience. A floating window feature has been added on-top of MIUI 12.5 that allows multi-tasking on the go.
Proceeding further, we have privacy features like approximate location, clipboard privacy protection among others. There’s a Full Android Sandbox mechanism working under the hood. MIUI 12.5 also takes separate permissions settings for each app installed and more. Xiaomi has also added a tonne of animations like hourglass countdown although it is supported on a limited number of devices at the moment such as Mi 11, Mi 10/10 Pro, and Redmi K30 Pro.
Next up, the enhanced audio stereo system on MIUI 12.5 works on a limited number of features too or at least are made to rollout on certain devices similar to its other features like natural touch design and MI Health’s heart rate monitoring feature citing hardware limitations. Xiaomi states that the Mi Health Spring String 2.0 is supported on a handful of devices which includes Mi 10/10 Pro/10 Ultra/10 Lite/Youth Edition, Mi 11, and Mi 9/9Pro 5G.
As mentioned previously, the stable MIUI 12.5 is scheduled to rollout in April 2021 on a selected number of devices before propagating to other eligible devices. Meanwhile, MIUI 13 will likely join the wagon around the same time as per reports so lets see what rolls out and when.
Update as of December 29: MIUI 12.5 offers a plethora of new features before the MIUI 13 could arrive in April or May 2021 or so. The MIUI 12.5 is scheduled to arrive on Chinese units with the closed beta testing now and the stable update releasing as early as April 2021. With that being said, Xiaomi has brought a new feature called MIUI+ on-board MIUI 12.5 which forms a bridge between Xiaomi smartphones and Windows PC.
According to the information, the MIUI+ allows users to seamlessly connect their devices to Windows and perform activities at real-time. This includes but not limited to the ability to view phone notifications on a computer, browse mobile files on computer in an efficient manner, open mobile web pages using a computer and also, open notes on a computer for a larger size and so on.
The MIUI+ is a revolutionary tech but it isn’t the only one and it is also in beta so expect a few backlogs and shortcomings. The beta version may not be available for public and thus, users will have to wait till the stable version isn’t rolled out on. Also, the MIUI+ feature isn’t available for all the devices but rather a handful of devices which includes Xiaomi Mi 11, Mi 9 Series, Mi 10 series, Redmi K30 Pro and Redmi K20 Pro with the underlying MIUI 12.5 as their firmware.
Some laptops such as RedmiBook 14 II, Air 13, 16; Redmi G gaming notebook, Mi Notebook Pro 15.6 2020 and Pro Enhanced Edition will also get their hands on MIUI 12+ as well. [Source]
Update as of December 23: In a previous update, we reported that the MIUI 12.5 stable will not be ready till the end of February 2021. However, with the recent update pouring in, the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro scheduled to launch on December 28 are expected to get MIUI 12.5 on-board. It is highly likely that the update will be in beta version given the fact that the stable version is expected to arrive a few months later. It is quite plausible although we will have to wait and see if things materialize and the MIUI 12.5 arrives with Mi 11 series or not. [Source]
Update as of December 21: If you have been waiting for MIUI 12.5 which is an intermediate update between MIUI 12 and MIUI 13, here’s some exciting news for you. We knew that the MIUI 12.5 will arrive early next year. According to an update posted on Xiaomi Turkish channel on Telegram, the MIUI 12.5 is slated to arrive as a stable version by the end of February 2021. It further adds that the first closed beta for MIUI 12.5 would have arrived between January 2 to 3 if it wasn’t a holiday.
With that being said, MIUI 12 rollout took a few months and the MIUI 12.5 rollout won’t be any difference whatsoever. It will still take a few months to arrive on all eligible devices and by that time, the MIUI 13 will surely make it official as well although we aren’t aware of the ETA for the latter yet. [Source]
Update as of December 14: Before MIUI 13 hits Xiaomi devices, it is MIUI 12.5 that users will get on their devices. Apparently, MIUI 12.5 is a preparatory update towards the upcoming MIUI 13. This was nudged by Alvin Tse, the General Manager at Xiaomi Indonesia who said that the MIUI 12.5 will offer more stability and optimization before MIUI 13 hits the market. Xiaomi hasn’t yet confirmed the list of MIUI 12.5 supported devices officially although yesterday, we updated a tentative list of devices eligible for MIUI 12.5. No doubt smartphones that receive MIUI 12.5 will also get MIUI 13 although it remains to be seen as the Chinese OEM hasn’t officially stated it at the time of writing this. [Source]
#2: Xiaomi just added a new beta update based on MIUI 12 before the upgraded MIUI 12.5 arrives. The new bet update brings a new ‘Floating Window’ on-board and it is integrated with the notification bar. The app allows users to interact with apps without opening them such as in the case of replying to a chat message. The feature worked pretty fluently as seen in a demo. It is now available for Redmi K30, Redmi K30S Ultra, Mi 10 Lite, M 10 Pro, and Redmi K30 Pro although in a limited numbers.
Another update that the beta version brought on-board is the new Control Center where a 5G toggle has been added. This will allow users to tap into the unparalleled 5G experience allowing users to switch between multiple network bands. The Chinese smartphone maker is inching closer to MIUI 12.5 which is a preparatory update towards the upcoming MIUI 13 slated to arrive sometime in the Q1 2021 although take it with a pinch of salt. [Source]
Update as of December 12: As we are nearing MIUI 12.5 release on an unspecified date, list of eligible devices has popped up on the internet although not official so take it with a grain of salt.

Update as of December 10: The MIUI 13 is still a few months away. But it appears like the way to MIUI 13 goes through MIUI 12.5 and it was just confirmed with features on-board.Apparently, MIUI 12.5 is being tested and some of the features have leaked in the mainstream as well. The update brings massive improvements and innovations on-board preparing devices to the upcoming and overhauled MIUI 13.
According to the information available on Mi Community, new features like animations, new volume controls, Approximate Location, image to PDF, a new Recents layout, a new power menu are few of the updated features and enhancements to name. The post also states information about the redesigned UI for both Cleaner and Camera app as well as lock screen notification center and style.
Xiaomi is also adding MIUI 12.5 with support to Android 11’s bubble notifications, voice control, new icon styles, a super resolution, QR code scanner UI and a lot more. As of now, Xiaomi will suspend MIUI 12 closed beta from December 14 so we will likely get to see MIUI 12.5 pretty soon. There’s no ETA available at the moment but we must get the update pretty soon. [Source]
Update as of November 28: The MIUI 12 is quite everywhere on the Xiaomi line of smartphones. However, it isn’t all flawless but rather has issues that need to be ironed out. Apparently, MIUI 12 is facing issues with third-party launchers like Lawnchair or Nova and others. This comes from many users who posted about the issue on Reddit and other forums discussing how these launchers broke after upgrading to MIUI 12 update. A user posted that he asked a third-party launcher for support but they clearly said that they can address it possibly hinting at Xiaomi’s issue. Thus, we are left with broken launchers until the Chinese OEM fixes it in the further updates. [Source 1, 2, 3]
Update as of November 28: Xiaomi is still working on MIUI 12 to plug all the bugs and add features. It published a weekly bug report a few days ago for MIUI 12 that affected the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, Poco X3, among others. According to the update, the Poco X3 which was suffering from audio server crash issues on the Discord app has been resolved. The Redmi 6 Pro too was facing a system lag problem with various builds ranging from EU, Global, and other variants. Apart from that, the Redmi Note 7/7S was facing camera app issues. You can read more about it here.
Update as of November 24: Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 has already released on a plethora of smartphones. Xiaomi is still developing it with new features, bug fixes, and more released almost every week. However, users have discovered that a new issue pops up claiming that the ‘Security keeps stopping’. This has affected many Xiaomi users but prominently, Redmi 5 Plus, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Poco F2 Pro, Poco F1 among others have reported it so far.
Turns out Xiaomi hasn’t acknowledged the issue at least at the time of writing this. Users have suggested workarounds that seem to be working although I wouldn’t recommend it as a fix for longterm. Users can uninstall the security app updates from their devices. They can do the same by navigating to Apps >> Manage Apps. As said earlier, this is a temporary and users are advised to wait for the official bug fix to arrive shortly. [Source]
Update as of November 23: According to the latest update arriving on Global and Turkish Telegram groups, the overhauled power menu that was teased with Android 11-based MIUI 12 will now trickle down to Android 10 as well. This is w.r.t. V20.11.25 but the update regarding its rollout remains a mystery and so is its rollout to general users.
