Xiaomi unveils MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition earlier this week at the launch event of Mi MIX 4. The announcement was that from August 13, the eligible devices will start receiving this update batch wise. Thus, as per the announcements, the company has started rolling out the latest version of MIUI for the first batch of smartphones. Moreover, MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition does not bring any features, its just about optimizations. However, it is worth noting that Xiaomi is separately testing iOS-like widgets.
Moreover, according to the official announcements, a total of 12 premium Mi and Redmi smartphones are part of this first batch of eligible devices for updating the new software. Out of these first batch, till now there are six of them for whom update is available. These are Mi MIX 4, Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10S, Redmi K40, Redmi K30, and Redmi K30S Ultra.
