That being said, MIUI 13 will bring in several new features and an overall faster and less bloated software experience.

Building on the improvements introduced with MIUI 12.5, Xiaomi says that apps will stutter less and provide an enhanced multitasking experience for flagship devices.

MIUI 13 is also set to receive a new system font called MiSans along with some new widgets which seemingly take inspiration from iOS.

Moreover, the company said that MIUI 13 will focus on user privacy as well. As a result, Xiaomi has introduced features like face verification protection, electronic fraud protection, and enhanced malware protection.

The company also revealed its rollout plan for MIUI 13 for the global market and said that a bunch of devices will start getting the update sometime this month. The Xiaomi 11 has already received MIUI 13 in China.

It should be noted that the first batch of phones set to receive MIUI 13 will be based on Android 12, while others might get MIUI 13 based on Android 11 since the UI isn’t tied to any Android version.
