At the beginning of May this year we saw the list of Xiaomi and Redmi that will no longer update. As usual, when the company prepares to launch a new mobile device, it also communicates how much support it can count on. It should be remembered that the life cycle of a device it does not depend on the company itself but above all on the processor manufacturers. Anyhow Xiaomi has updated the list of Xiaomi and Redmi that in this 2022 will no longer receive MIUI updates, therefore they are no longer officially supported. Let's see them together.
Xiaomi Mi 8, Xiaomi Mi 9 and Redmi 7A are the three smartphones that will no longer receive MIUI updates. End of life for them
Xiaomi Mi 8, Xiaomi Mi 9 e Redmi 7A they will no longer update to MIUI, neither stable nor Beta. For the three of them, the life cycle (EoL or End of Life) is over. It was inevitable after all. Despite the company's efforts to keep its devices updated, as mentioned, the processor companies "remove the keys" to individual brands to allow free access to the code to continue updating it. In fact, as a rule all smartphones (not just those of the brand) receive 3 years of system updates (Android therefore). Regarding security updates that include the security patches latest, security vulnerability fixes and other security enhancements, the company promises at least 2 years after the release of a certain model.
In any case, according to what we learn, Xiaomi Mi 8, Xiaomi Mi 9 and Redmi 7A will no longer update to MIUI. But let's not just talk about Xiaomi's custom Android skin, but even security patches. It should be noted that the two lists of Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones that will no longer receive updates are constantly updated. Specifically, the last time these lists were updated was last May 2. There are no smartphones of the sub-brand POCO Unfortunately. We will keep you updated if we find a list of POCOPHONE.
