MIUI 14 announced with improved system architecture and refined design

Michail, 12 December 2022

The first MIUI launched back in 2010 and over 12 years later MIUI boasts a global user base of over 564 million monthly active users. Just as the Xiaomi 13 series went official we got the announcement of MIUI 14 – the latest Android 13-based interface for Xiaomi devices.


Xiaomi says this is the most optimized and streamlined MIUI to date and it starts with Project Razor. The team behind MIUI 14 updated the system architecture on the Android Kernel level with CPU, GPU and memory resource scheduling, lighter system firmware size and decreased memory usage.

Xiaomi claims MIUI 14 runs 60% smoother compared to its predecessor on the Xiaomi 12S Ultra.

Other neat optimizations include automatic compression for apps that are not actively used and a toggle to turn off permanent notifications. Only eight system apps cannot be uninstalled which is a major leap from past MIUI releases.

MIUI 14’s design features customizable folders with normal and large icons and new widget options with various shapes and sizes. One of the more unexpected new additions in MUI 14 are the flowers and pets widgets which are animated Tamagotchi-like characters that live on your home screen.

MIUI 14 also brings duplicated file merger and improved text recognition and extraction from images in the gallery. Privacy is also overhauled with end-to-end encryption and local on-device processing of user data.

MIUI 14 also has a new toggle in the control center that lets you assign Xiaomi accessories like wireless earbuds between Xiaomi devices via drag and drop. This feature will remove the hassle of pairing earbuds to other devices.
