Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 is a major upgrade to the custom UI in terms of new features as well as improvements. The second round of the MIUI 12 update rollout schedule has already started and devices like the Redmi 6 Pro are now picking the latest custom skin.

We reported earlier that the MIUI 12 stable update came out for Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro in China. It was expected as the OEM provides all updates in the home-country first and then continues with other regions after some time.

Now, it seems that the MIUI 12 update is rolling out to the Indian Redmi 6 Pro variant. However, this is still for the Mi Pilot program members and regular Redmi 6 Pro users will have to wait before they can grab the MIUI 12 stable update.


So, if you have signed up for the Mi Pilot program, you can now get the MIUI 12 update for your Indian Redmi 6 Pro variant. Also, if you want to install the update manually, we’ve got you covered.

The update changelog is given below followed by the download link. Moreover, you can refer to these workarounds if you face any errors while installing the update.

Since this update is meant only for the Mi Pilot program members, it is advisable that you go through this Redmi Note 8 Pro story before flashing the update as doing so can damage your device.

Moreover, the Redmi 6 Pro has already received its promised Android OS update. This means that this MIUI 12 update is still based on Android 9 Pie as Xiaomi is known for providing its Redmi series devices with just one OS update.

Hopefully, the OEM changes this trend and starts providing more OS updates to the Redmi series devices. Meanwhile, you can check out our MIUI 12 update tracker to know when it arrives on your device.
