As the new year has already begun, smartphone manufacturers are now working hard to push in the latest Android 10 updates for their compatible devices.

Heavy skin OEMs like Xiaomi, etc have been a tad behind in rolling out the Android 10 update. However, a few days back, we have reported that Xiaomi has made the Android 10 update live for the global users of the Mi A2.

The update as usual for any Android 10 update, brings in all the new features and goodies of the latest OS like dark mode, smart answers, digital wellness, new gesture navigation, and animations, etc for the Xiaomi Mi A2 smartphone. 

What might come as a surprise for users of the Xiaomi Mi A2 is that the Android 10 update that was pushed on January 12, 2020, has been halted just a day after it went live.

In fact, looking at the update announcement post on the Mi community platform, the post states “Cancelled Distribution” dating to 01/13/20 meaning that the distribution of the update was halted on January 13, 2020.

Moreover, according to the statement from a Xiaomi moderator,

Some obsolete functions were removed in this version, you may have to redo some settings.
Also note that the distribution of this update will be staggered just as there may be a possibility to cancel its distribution.
