The distribution and development of updates is always a little problematic when it comes to Android smartphones. While there are projects like Project Treble that are designed to distribute new versions more quickly, things really don’t go as planned. If you are using a Xiaomi phone, you can get the next MIUI version a little faster with this guide.
This is because Xiaomi will always prioritize its leading domestic market with new versions before rolling out updates to other countries. In this article, we suggest that you familiarize yourself with one way by which you can get the next version of MIUI – if you’re lucky.
How to get the update on your Xiaomi smartphone faster
First of all, you will need to go to the settings on your Xiaomi smartphone and then follow these steps:
- Find “Advanced Settings” in your device settings.
- Choose region”.
- Now search for India and set the default region.
- Go back to settings.
After changing the region, you need to check again for updates for your phone. To do this, you need to do the following:
- Go to the “About phone” section in the settings of your smartphone.
- Here by clicking on the MIUI version you will find out if there are any updates available.
- Click Download Update (if available) to begin the installation process.
Of course, we tried this method before recommending it to our readers. We were unable to locate the update in the Russia region, but after moving to the India region, we downloaded a security patch. The whole process usually takes less than five minutes and you don’t even need to switch back to your region after checking for updates. By the way, you also don’t need to worry about the language changing on your smartphone. Therefore, be sure to try this method to get the next version of MIUI faster.
