Xiaomi 12 Pro Android 13 upgrade: how to update

It is interesting to note that the Xiaomi 12 Pro (review) was scheduled to have received MIUI 14 based on Android 13 within the first quarter of the year, and Xiaomi has now managed to keep its promised timeline.

To receive the update, you can simply go through the following steps:

  • Access the Settings menu on your Xiaomi 12 Pro
  • Scroll down to the ‘About phone section’

As with every software upgrade, ensure that you have all your data and essentials backed up, just in case, to ensure no accidental loss of information.
