MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Version rollout will complete on August 27 for the first batch of devices
Xiaomi is currently in the process of rolling out the so-called MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Version to the first batch of supported devices in China. This rollout began on August 13 and was to be completed on August 27, when it will have reached all the units out in the wild.
The models included in the first batch of the new release are Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11 Pro, Redmi K40 Pro, Mi 10S, Mi 11, Mi 10 Ultra, Redmi K30S, Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Redmi K40 and Redmi K30 Pro. Mix 4 debuted running the new version of the software.
So far, Xiaomi has not shared any plans to make MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Version available outside of China, but we will let you know if we hear more about such a perspective. The update fine-tunes MIUI 12.5 with things like better read and write speeds for storage (and much improved fragmentation by up to 60%). As a result, the read and write performance decreases by less than 5% after 36 months of use compared to the usual one, which is around 50% for other devices.
Memory management has been further optimized for smoother operation, and processor scheduling has also been revamped, improving the priority for UI rendering – this apparently results in a 15% reduction in CPU usage and an average of 8% power savings.
