Xiaomi announces MIUI 13, MIUI Pad 13, Xiaomi Paipai, and more

 As expected, today, Xiaomi announced MIUI 13, its own custom Android skin based on Android 12, and as previously confirmed by rumors, the new MIUI version does not contain any impressive new feature, but rather bug fixes (as Xiaomi says), and minor changes in the user interface.

Although the MIUI 13 does not have major changes to the user interface, Xiaomi has introduced something with it that will change the traditional concept of MIUI that we have known for the last ten years, as a custom android skin for smartphones devices.

MIUI 13:

The first change you will see in the final version is the new Control Center. The elements of the Control Center, which is introduced with Miui 12, have been rearranged, the audio and lighting control indicator has been added horizontally at the top of the Control Center, and it is now more similar to that of the iOS one.

Xiaomi has integrated a widget center into the Mii 13 launcher. This center includes, in addition to the widgets for system applications, widgets for third-party applications and games that the user can download and use freely on the main screen. All of these widgets in this center have the same design, which makes them appear in harmony with the rest of the components and elements of the system on the home screen.

MIUI 13 also comes with a new clearer and more consistent default font called Mi Sans, and a set of wallpapers that show the microscopic morphology of crystals of some chemical substances such as acids and vitamins, as well as beautiful animated colored backgrounds for molten glass.

The Chinese version of the new MIUI interface also contains a security guard that protects the user from the dangers of electronic phishing by warning him if he receives a call from a suspicious number, or a text or email message from a fraudulent sender, where a clear message appears in this case on the user’s phone screen bearing a color warning Red must be dealt with caution with the suspicious sender. This message clarifies the suspicious elements contained in the message, which allows the user to undo before clicking on the content of the message, to protect his privacy and personal information.

The same message appears when the user tries to install a malicious application to protect the user from malicious applications.

MIUI 13 also adds a feature to protect identity documents and documents, as the system provides adding a watermark to it to limit its use in other places and purposes, as MIUI recognizes sensitive documents automatically, and suggests the user cover them with a watermark. MIUI 13 also protects user privacy by scanning only the user's face, without additional body parts or any objects around it, during the facial recognition process.

MIUI 13 Pad:

 during this event, Xiaomi also announced a special version of MIUI 13 for tablets (for Mi iPad 5 and Mi Pad 5 Pro for now), as in, 3000 different applications were adapted to take advantage of the large screen size of the device, Pen support and multitasking has been also improved, and the MIUI interface on the tablet now supports shortcuts navigation and control just like a computer.

You can switch between full screen and window mode for apps by holding down the corner of the app and dragging it inward to get the app in the window mode or keep swiping inward to get a floating app at the size of the phone screen. To go back to full-screen mode again, tap and drag the corner of the app toward the corner of the screen.

When the app is in full screen, you can drag an app from the dock to get the app floating on top of the first app, which is very useful, you can reply to an incoming message, or do some calculation on the calculator app, while working on your project in full screen, for example. At the same time.

By pressing and holding an application icon on the main screen, a small list of options will appear, allowing you to enter the floating application mode directly.

MIUI Next:

In an effort to create a collaborative operating system that ensures the user a seamless transition between different devices and a better MIUI user experience, Xiaomi announced that in addition to the phone and tablet versions, it will launch MIUI Watch, MIUI Home, MIUI TV, to cover all life scenarios: personal, family and business.

All of these devices will work with each other under the so-called MIUI NEXT, which allows the user to send applications, multimedia files, and other items such as clipboard content, for example, between various other devices running the MIUI operating system to continue using them between these devices.

For example, the user can send a game from his mobile phone to his tablet device that runs MIUI to continue playing on a larger screen, or send a movie to his smart TV to continue watching it on the big screen, or send his walking directions from his phone to his smartwatch...etc.

MIUI NEXT is similar to the Apple Handoff or Huawei Super Device features and is works through what Xiaomi calls Mi Miaoxiang Center.

Mi Miaoxiang is a set of development frameworks developed by Xiaomi, which allows developers to realize device interconnection functions such as collaboration, file transfer, relay, and screen projection based on this framework.
