What’s new in MIUI 14?

While there aren’t many visual changes in MIUI 14, there are a few fresh features related to on-device privacy and optimization.

Redesigned Home Screen

While MIUI 14 resembles its previous iteration in many ways, Xiaomi now offers more customization for the home screen with MIUI 14. You can now stylize it by using tabular icons, large folders, widgets, and wallpapers to make it look clearer and easier to use in everyday use.

The new UI also brings a card-style design which helps to present the information more efficiently.

Back-end Optimization

MIUI 14 System Optimization

Xiaomi claims that MIUI 14 uses less storage than MIUI 13 and is optimized to free up more memory for space savings. Since  MIUI is a heavy Android skin, this is certainly a step in the right direction. Also, MIUI 14 will automatically compress rarely used apps to ensure optimal performance.

On-device Privacy

For privacy-conscious users, there’s a new on-device privacy feature that processes sensitive data within the device. With this, MIUI 14 uses the capabilities of your device to recognize text on images quickly and accurately. It is available for more than ten system services, says Xiaomi.
