MIUI 14 is here for a while, and Poco has now shared a list of eligible devices that will receive the new MIUI 14 for Poco update. As expected, this new custom skin introduces new features that the company adds with each iteration. So let’s go over the list of devices that will receive the Android 13-based MIUI 14 for Poco update.

MIUI 14 for Poco Update Roadmap:

For starters, MIUI 14 is based on both the Android 12 and Android 13 codebases. As a result, we are unsure which version of MIUI will be rolled out for Poco devices since the company itself hasn’t specified anything yet. Even the recently released Poco X5 Pro comes with MIUI 14, which is based on Android 12.

Anyways, the new custom skin was first introduced with the Xiaomi 13 Series. It brings some visual changes to the interface, including super icons, a new clock app, widgets, and other features. In terms of Poco, the brand will first update its current and former flagships, as well as its midrange smartphone lineup. The exact date of the rollout is currently unknown though.

Likewise, other phones from Poco are also entitled to get updates before the end of 2023. The list is as follows:

What’s new in MIUI 14 for Poco?

Super Icons and New Widgets

One of the key visual changes in MIUI 14 is its Super Icons. The feature allows you to set a custom size for icons on the homepage. You can also change the app icon’s shape to rectangular or square. Similarly, Xiaomi has included new widgets in MIUI 14 that allow for seamless switching.

MIUI 14 Photon Engine

The new iteration of MIUI also comes with Photon Engine. It’s said to significantly improve the speed of all third-party apps. The photon engine optimizes deep within the Linux kernel to provide MIUI users with a smooth experience. Xiaomi claims it will deliver 88% improved performance and increases efficiency by up to 16%.

Cleaner System

With MIUI 14, Xiaomi has decided to include fewer preinstalled apps than before. Obviously, those apps can be uninstalled along with some system apps too. Thus, those wanting bare minimum apps can easily remove system apps, leaving the core system app number to just 8. This ensures better storage management and more control for the user.

RAM and Storage Optimization

This new iteration also brings RAM and storage optimization features. To gain this, the system now cuts the auto-starting process, system app usage, and platform memory for more usual usable RAM. Likewise, for storage, MIUI 14 will auto-compress the apps unused for one month. Such optimizations will enhance multitasking, gaming, and storage management.
