Xiaomi officially announced the MIUI 7 OS for its smartphones on August 19 worldwide. The new operating system comes with little changes in the design department, but when it comes to features, you can expect a lot of new things. The company promised that the MIUI 7 version for all Xiaomi smartphones will start to roll out from August 24. Given that today is 24th, you can expect an update soon.
Those who are yet to receive an official OTA update can speed things by flashing the ROMs manually. Remember that you need to be using MIUI Global Beta ROM to get updates as soon as possible. Its different from the MIUI Global Stable ROM in the sense that the updates are more frequent in the beta version which also means you get more bugs. However, given the frequency of updates are usually around 2 weeks, expect bug fixes to be pretty fast too.
In case you don’t want to full wipe while flashing the new MIUI 7 Global beta versions, you can wait for an official OTA update. The company has promised MIUI 7 Global Beta ROMs for Redmi 1S, Redmi 2, Mi4i, Mi3, Mi4, Redmi Note 3G and Redmi Note 4G via OTA update in the coming days.
Remember that MIUI has a huge fan following and you’ll probably have to try downloading it a couple of times to succeed. If you can’t download it right now, wait for a couple of hours.
