To be a Beta Tester there are gods requirements including: being actively featured on channels where developers will collect feedback; give information such as IMEI and your Mi Account ID when registering; be tolerant of bugs that arise (because there will be, we assure you). Last requirement, but not least, make a backup before entering the Beta test.

Among the improvements of MIUI 14 there is the Photonic engine, which allows you to create lighter and less resource-intensive applications, will be available only for chip-based smartphones Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Therefore, starting from the Xiaomi Mi 10 series backwards, the devices will not support the innovation.

In MIUI 14 the so-called is implemented Razor project, aimed at reducing the size of the operating system: all firmware takes up 13.09 GB on the device. According to Xiaomi, this is a record value, since the closest competitor "weighs" 15 GB (we are talking about iOS). Also, the operating system consumes only 3.3 GB of RAM, which also became the lowest value ever. Finally, the number of pre-installed non-removable applications has been reduced to just 8 - it's about Camera, Settings, Phone, Mi Store, Messages, Browser, Contacts and File Explorer.

With the new OS version, your Xiaomi or Redmi smartphone is able to identify texts in images and interact with them, similar to iOS. Incidentally, Xiaomi has compared both software and promised more accuracy in its operating system.

There are also visual changes. For example, for application icons (probably only the standard ones), we can choose one of the four sizes that the company has made available. Basically, icons can change shape. Another interesting innovation was the appearance of a digital pet on the main screen. In the example, a cat widget was presented, which goes about its business during the day, pleasing the user's eye. Pretty useless, but still a nice thing to look at.
