Xiaomi has had the MIUI Android interface since 2010, however, according to new reports, the tech firm is looking for a change with the next iteration of its custom interface replacing it with an all-new MiOS.
MIUI now boasts a global user base of over 564 million monthly active users and the latest version out is MIUI 14 which was announced last December. Could MIUI 14 be the last? According to reliable tipster Digital Chat Station, the answer could be yes.
It is unclear if MiOS will be another a new UI skin over Android like MIUI or if Xiaomi is actually developing a new mobile operating system. Previous rumors suggest that Xiaomi is looking to follow in Huawei’s footsteps by launching its own Android Open Source Project (AOSP) based operating system. Xiaomi is rumoured to use the new OS in their upcoming electric cars on top of their plethora of gadgets including Redmi and Poco smartphone brands. Digital Chat Station has hinted that Xiaomi’s MiOS might make its debut alongside the upcoming Xiaomi 14 Series.
Xiaomi secured the domain name “mios.cn” from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in November 2022. There are also rumours of a MiOS developer beta circulating on Chinese media.
MiOS, if it indeed exists, more details about it will emerge as we get closer to the Xiaomi 14 Series launch.
