The first set of devices that will get MIUI 12.5 globally in April or May includes Mi 11, Mi 10T, Mi 10T Pro, Mi 10, and Mi 10 Pro.
More smartphones from the xiaomi company will follow after that in the second half of the year. Although the numbering doesn’t imply it, this is not an overly small update – we’re thinking Xiaomi may have intentionally wanted to avoid 13 for now.
MIUI 12.5 comes with a complete revamp of the system UI which reduced its CPU usage by up to 22% and power consumption was lowered by up to 15%. This enables “frictionless” performance and graphics, which is most visible in screen gestures that should be smoother than ever.
In previous release of MIUI, gestures and other tasks were rendered on a single thread, resulting in a queue of tasks competing for CPU usage, so an overload could cause lags. In miui 12.5, gestures have their own dedicated thread, making sure no other tasks interfere with them, guaranteeing an instant response.
MIUI 12.5 also has many more uninstallable system apps than its predecessors, the vast majority of such apps can now be uninstalled, while a small number of apps that are “engraved in the system core” can be hidden
