Xiaomi retires MIUI to create a new interface, debuts on Xiaomi 14 series phones
Goodbye (or good riddance) MIUI, for you shall make way to a better, newer version of you.
Xiaomi has officially announced a revamp to its smartphone operating system, where it would retire MIUI in favour of a brand-new Xiaomi HyperOS. Like its predecessor, it’s an Android-based reskin for its mobiles, and will debut on the Xiaomi 14 series smartphones.
The news was announced by Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi, via his Weibo social media channel. The short version said:
“Today is a historic moment for Xiaomi. Xiaomi’s new operating system, Xiaomi HyperOS, has been officially packaged. Xiaomi 14 series, the first mobile phone equipped with the new system, has been delivered to the factory, and production has officially started. From this moment on, Xiaomi HyperOS will gradually succeed MIUI.”
In the longer post, Lei Jun said that the new operating system is a “leapfrog upgrade”, emphasising Xiaomi’s massive smart device ecosystem spanning 200 categories beyond its handsets. The switch to a new operating system was necessary to ensurean Android system that’s properly integrated the growing Internet of Everything base of products used by billions of devices and a billion users of Xiaomi.
Xiaomi also added that it was 13 years since MIUI first started (with its 16 August 2010 birthday) and that it is open to suggestions for HyperOSto truly succeed MIUI as an interoperable OS.
Bye MIUI. You weren’t the best with your inconsistent fonts, menus, and weirdly categorised settings, but you still did plenty of good for many others for 13 years.
