Xiaomi rolls out MIUI 13 based on Android 13 for the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro
Google recently rolled out the first stable build of Android 13 to Pixel devices. Following in its footsteps, Xiaomi has now released the first stable build of MIUI 13 based on Android 13 for its flagship Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro. The update brings all the new features Google introduced with Android 13 to the devices.
For the unaware, Xiaomi offers users two kinds of stable MIUI releases: “beta stable” and “stable.” There’s a thin distinction between the two builds, with the “beta stable” releases intended for a small fraction of users enrolled in the Mi Pilot beta testing program. This group tests the early release, after which it rolls out to a wider audience.
The MIUI 13 build based on Android 13 currently rolling out to the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro is a “beta stable” release. This means that users who are not enrolled in the Mi Pilot beta testing program will not be able to install it on their devices. If you are a part of the Mi Pilot beta testing program, however, you can install the build on your Xiaomi 12 or Xiaomi 12 Pro by following the links provided below.
