MIUI 14 release date and rollout schedule

This was followed by the MIUI 14 India launch where the company unveiled a list of devices eligible to receive the update in the forthcoming months
Before releasing the stable update, public betas for all compatible Xiaomi, Redmi, and POCO devices will likely be released through the official channels first.

MIUI 14 features
Just like every new MIUI iteration, MIUI 14 comes with a new set of features, user interface (UX) refinements, and several security and privacy improvements. Here are the key features coming to MIUI 14.
Home screen customisation
MIUI 14 brings tons of new customisation options to the home screen. These include refreshed first-party widgets, tabular icons, big folders, and a couple of new wallpapers. Apart from that, users can also expect better fluency when scrolling on the home screen and opening applications.
To segment various options in a clean and appealing manner, MIUI 14 uses a card-like design throughout the interface making it more organised and presentable. This is most evident in the Settings app, where various sections are divided into boxes.
Under the hood optimisations
Xiaomi has put in a decent amount of effort to make MIUI 14 lighter than previous versions. System resources have been reduced in size while the memory usage has also been optimised to ensure apps continue running in the background. Furthermore, the system will automatically compress unused applications to free up a certain amount of internal storage.
MIUI 14 will process each and every task on the device itself to prevent the risk of data transmission. This means, everything that happens on your device, stays on it. For instance, MIUI 14 allows the user to copy text from images for which the system doesn’t require any interference from the internet or server. On-device privacy is available on more than ten system apps.
Certain Xiaomi smartphones and tablets running on MIUI 14 will be able to take advantage of the seamless connectivity options the new custom skin brings. This includes copying text from one device and accessing the clipboard on another, sharing files through a drag-and-drop functionality, and even syncing apps and data between two devices.
Xiaomi is introducing a slick new editing tool with MIUI 14 called Erase People. As the name suggests, it allows the user to remove people from an image and retain the main subject in focus without ruining the quality or details. The feature is accessible from the Gallery within the editing options.
