If you have one of these Xiaomi phones, you should think about changing it.
As usual every few weeks, Xiaomi has updated his list of mobiles without support for new software versions. It contains all those devices that, due to having reached the end of their support life, will no longer receive MIUI updates nor new android versions.
These 5 Xiaomi phones will no longer receive new versions of MIUI
If we take a look at the list of unsupported devices+e published by Xiaomi in its Security Center, we will see that at the end of it they have joined new models. Five, to be exact.
Xiaomi itself explains that all those devices that are part of this list will no longer receive new software updates or security patches. And, therefore, any reports on security vulnerabilities that may arise from now on will not be responded to.
The five new models from Xiaomi that will no longer receive updates are the following:
- LITTLE X2
- Redmi K30
- Redmi K30 5G
- Redmi 8
- Redmi 8A
In the case of the POCO X2, it should be noted that It is the only device of the five that did not yet have MIUI 13. Therefore, you will keep MIUI 12.5 until the end of your days, since you will no longer receive new software versions.
However, there is always the option of resorting to firmware created by third-party developers, which can bring the experience of MIUI 13, or even MIUI 14 closer to older models and without official support from the brand. In fact, a few days ago we reported on how a developer had managed to install MIUI 14 on a Xiaomi from 5 years ago.
