New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on December 13, 2020) follows:

Xiaomi’s MIUI skin is easily one of the most feature-rich skins for Android phones. Over the years, the company has refined its skin a ton which is why it amassed a massive fan-based in many regions.

The company’s latest version of its skin is dubbed MIUI 12 and was announced on April 27, 2020 and has since then been pushed to almost every eligible Xiaomi phone.

At present, there are still a few phones left to bag the stable update and in case you’re interested in the status of MIUI 12 for your phone, you can check out our dedicated tracker by heading here.

Having said that, since MIUI 12 is widely available on 31 phones already, most of us assumed that the next step for Xiaomi will be to release the MIUI 13 update.

However, it appears that Xiaomi isn’t yet done with its MIUI 12 skin. Since its initial release, the company has been steadily adding new features and improvements via software updates.

And recent developments indicate that the company is now gearing up to release MIUI 12.5. You can read more about the upcoming update by heading here.

The MIUI 12.5 update is expected to bring a few new features, tweaks, and UI improvements, however, it will not be as major of an update as MIUI 11 to MIUI 12 was.

Of course, Xiaomi will save most of the major stuff for the MIUI 13 update which is likely to begin rolling out sometime later next year.

Not much is known about the upcoming MIUI 12.5 update at the time of writing this, but we expect to see some features and UI changes that have been in testing such as the PDF converter in the Gallery app, revamped UI in certain sections, and more to be added with the new skin.
