Today at a China launch event, Xiaomi introduced its Android 12 based MIUI 13 update. The new software update focuses on enhancing privacy and security by rolling out new features. The new MIUI 13 brings new fonts, wallpapers and a customized version for the tablet. The new tablet version is called MIUI 13 Pad.
According to the company, the new MIUI 13 interface will work on phones, tablets, TVs, smart wearables, smart home devices and XiaoAI voice assistant.
For better user privacy, Xiaomi has added a three-step verification process that will now include user ID reading and a facial recognition system with “electronic fraud protection”. According to the company, “Electronic Fraud Protection” records websites and devices that can infect your phone with malware. Xiaomi will also save some numbers in the phonebook as nefarious so that the user can be informed well before taking the call.
MIUI 13 has also introduced a new font called Ans-serif font. The new font is now free to download commercially. The new font appears to be more symmetrical in terms of appearance and spacing. In the new update new animated wallpapers with flowers are also added. According to Xiaomi, the new wallpapers were captured using a polarizing microscope via 8K timelapse photography. Xiaomi has redesigned the widgets to make the grid neater.
The MIUI 13 Pad comes with new tablet-centric gestures such as dragging, pinch-to-resize, drag-and-drop, or opening apps directly in a small window.
