Xiaomi: Understand How the MIUI Weekly Update Cycle Works

In 2010, Xiaomi decided to strongly modify Android as it was dissatisfied with the performance of Google's operating system. Developed from Android, MIUI brings a host of features and functions requested by various community users. To intensify the development of its system, Mi has created a weekly update cycle for its devices. Check out how the cycle implemented by the Chinese manufacturer works through the article below.

What is MIUI?

MIUI is a complete ecosystem with unique functions and its own app store. The MIUI system goes beyond a simple interface or custom ROM, even though it is compiled from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). The advanced development of Mi's system has culminated in a constant cycle of updates, distributed fortnightly to its users. To get you around, 64-bit architecture support is available on MIUI 6 based on Android KitKat 4.4.4, meaning Redmi 2 takes advantage of Snapdragon 410 (64-bit) without the need for embedded Android Lollipop.

On Fridays, Xiaomi releases the MIUI beta. This compilation can be downloaded and tested by all users who will provide feedbacks with suggestions for improvements. After the weekend, Mi's team of developers works to correct and optimize notes taken during the tests conducted between Saturday and Sunday. On Thursday, the latest internal tests are performed, and the next day, the final update made available to all users.

TouchWiz, Samsung's proprietary interface, receives significant updates with each new final version of Android released by Google to the general public. Compared to Xiaomi, MIUI has its own cycle of feature upgrades and implementations, which don't have to wait for a new version of Android to appear.

In your opinion, can MIUI outperform Android itself in the future?
