Before the article begins, Brother Ji has a question:
Now, how many people who buy Xiaomi mobile phones are going for MIUI?
In the past, everyone talked about Xiaomi’s MIUI.
The vocabulary that comes to mind for the first time should be rich in functions, update and maintain conscience, right?
In particular, the unique “Orange Friday” release rhythm that year.
How many machine guys have been directly attracted, and they have entered the pit of MIUI.
Brother Ji is also one of them. The first thing to do every time you get a new phone is to flash the development version.
But now. . .
The bug that was madly sprayed in MIUI 12, MIUI 13 is really getting better.
But the update and maintenance, this year, have made a lot of moths.
Many flagship mobile phones that have been released for two years have begun to report that the development version has been stopped.
The last time was Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro.
It’s their big brother’s turn again – Mi 10 Ultra.
MIUI official announcement.
Official announcement from October 31st.
Many models, including Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and Redmi K30S Ultra, will stop providing maintenance for the development version.
And the focus of everyone’s attention is naturally on the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra.
In terms of hardware, it has Snapdragon 865, full-focus image, 120W fast charge, etc.
Is it out of date? no.
This combination is still very playable today.
In terms of status, it is also the first-generation Ultra model of Xiaomi Digital, with a starting price of up to 5,299 yuan.
At the same time, it is also the strongest mobile phone that Xiaomi has hit the high-end for the first time.
Coupled with the good reputation after its release, it can definitely be counted in the ranks of classic nails.
result. . It has only been two years since it was released, and the maintenance of the development version will be stopped.
Without the internal test, at least it means that Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra will not be able to upgrade to Android 13.
Sure enough, as soon as the announcement came out, the Mi Fans holding the 10 Ultra were not happy.
Judging from everyone’s complaints, in fact, the views are similar.
If it is a low-end machine with a few hundred dollars, then the development version is maintained for two years.
The problem is that you are a high-end mobile phone that sells five or six thousand.
The co-authorship treatment is the same as that of a low-end machine. .
To be honest, don’t talk about everyone, Brother Ji doesn’t understand either.
In fact, the policy for adjusting the opening hours of the development version was launched in 2019.
So why is everyone complaining so much this year?
For the same reason, whether the practice is reasonable or not depends on the model.
It is said that “at least two major versions of system maintenance”.
Turns out, there are really only two.
Some people may think that if the development version is stopped, then the stable version will be maintained.
Indeed, the stable version of Mi 10 Ultra has not stopped for now.
But the stable version of MIUI is updated, and everyone knows it.
The development version is often used for more than half a year, and the stable version has not yet been seen.
For example, the fingerprint vibration that I mentioned last time was turned off, and the internal test of the development version was launched in March.
What about the stable version?
That’s why Xiaomi 12S Ultra has been launched in the past two days, other models? Continue to wait.
Another example is the Xiaomi MIX Fold2, which has been released for three months.
So far, Taobao has not been adapted to the parallel horizon function.
Use on a large screen, this is the X-like.
As for the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro, in early June, the development version based on Android 12 has also been released.
I heard that some netizens just received the stable version update today.
But anyway, Brother Ji has this one, and as of press time, he still hasn’t received it.
And heh, from past experience.
Most of the models that have stopped changing the development version can only get one or two more stable version updates.
Here is an example of the Redmi K20 series written by Ji Ge some time ago.
It initially stopped the maintenance of the development version at the end of November last year.
Then, by July of this year, Xiaomi put both models on the end-of-support list.
That is to say, no system updates will be provided in the future.
So, for the follow-up stable version maintenance of Mi 10 Ultra.
The situation is also not very optimistic.
Then you look at other homes, how are they doing now.
The OnePlus 8 series at the same time as the Xiaomi Mi 10 series.
Since the end of August, the internal test recruitment of Android 13 has been started.
A few days ago.
These models are based on the ColorOS 13 of Android 13, and have officially started the public beta.
What about MIUI?
Not to mention the mobile phones of the past two years, the new phones just released this year have no shadow.
Speaking of which, the system maintenance of OnePlus mobile phones in the past was severely criticized by netizens.
Now this comparison. .
Man, it’s the other way around.
OPPO is the same.
Even a series like Ace2 that has been cut off, still started the internal beta based on Android 13 early.
As for Hongmeng, let alone.
When the Xiaomi Mi 10 was stopped last time, Brother Ji saw a netizen complaining:
The last mobile phone, Huawei Mate10, has not stopped updating yet.
As a result, the current Xiaomi Mi 10 stopped first. .
This is compared with other friends now, if you compare it with the previous MIUI.
Then, there is no comparison.
Take a chestnut, a generation of magic machine Xiaomi 2S.
Released in 2013 with MIUI V5 pre-installed in the factory.
And its system update, which has been provided until MIUI 9 in 2018, stopped.
Now, it would be a miracle to be able to update three major versions of MIUI.
In addition, except for the development version of models like Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, the update is prematurely stopped.
In fact, even if it is a model that has not been stopped, the current update has been widely complained.
For no other reason, every week is a “couplet-style” update.
The last one I like to do is the small and beautiful one that everyone is using now.
Obviously the update package is several G.
But you often don’t know what it’s updated.
A similar situation exists even for models like Xiaomi Mi 12S Ultra.
Really treat everyone equally.
Having said that, at the beginning of the year, MIUI also released a development mode change announcement.
A brief summary is that starting from Android 13, MIUI will only be divided into the official version and the development version.
The development version is still updated every Friday, and the official version will be upgraded earlier.
Plus the two versions will be able to switch seamlessly, which does seem more reasonable.
But at least for now, this is still in the state of drawing cakes, and there is no progress.
There is also news that the Xiaomi Mi 13 series to be released in November is already testing MIUI 14.
But now there is basically no information about MIUI 14.
So, is it a big move? Or open? Let’s wait and see.
As for the impact on the high end.
Originally, Xiaomi Mi 12S teamed up with Leica this year to see progress.
As a result, in the past few months, there has been another after-sales storm for the Xiaomi Mi 11 series, and the development version of the Xiaomi Mi 10 series has been discontinued.
It’s all paid out again. .
