Xiaomi is working on a new MIUI feature, ‘MIUI Pure Mode,’ that aims to reduce the installation of unknown apps and enhance user security.
The feature is meant to address security concerns associated with malicious Android applications.
The smartphone maker explains that 40 percent of apps installed by MIUI users have never passed its security audit. Also, 10 percent have been recognized as potential risks. To fix this, Xiaomi is introducing MIUI Pure Mode, reports GizmoChina.
Xiaomi is accepting testers for MIUI Pure Mode in China. The slots will open from September 6 to 10.
Currently, it’s not known when MIUI Pure Mode will make its way to the stable channel and there is also no information regarding its availability in international markets.
Meanwhile, the MIUI 12.5 Enhanced version will be made available globally from October.
In a post on the Mi Global community, the company revealed a list of nine (9) models that will get the update first. Mi 11, Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11i, Mi 11X Pro, Mi 11X, Mi 10T Pro, Mi 10T, Mi 10 Pro, and Mi 10 are the phones which will receive the update.
MIUI 12.5 Enhanced brings several performance-related tweaks. With the update, the system performance will drop by less than 5 percent after 36 months. It will also bring an Atomic or Atomized Memory feature that will let a user keep more apps in the background.
