MIUI 12 update has started rolling out to Mi 10 users in India, Xiaomi confirmed in a tweet. The Chinese brand had announced last week that the first wave of the proprietary operating software (OS) update will be rolled out to select devices in the country, including the Mi 10. Today, Xiaomi tweeted that the update is being rolled out in phases specifically for Mi 10 users. Additionally, the handset is also expected to get a fun Magic Clone feature with the latest update.
Xiaomi took to Twitter to announce that MIUI 12 version v184.108.40.206 has been released in a phased manner for Mi 10 users in India. Since it's rolled out in batches, it might be some time before you spot the update on your handset.
Last week, the brand announced via a livestream that the MIUI 12 update will be rolled out in India to Mi 10, Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 8, Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 7, and Redmi Note 7 Pro in August. Xiaomi hasn't shared any details on the rollout plans for rest of the devices. However, some Redmi Note 9 users in the country reported last week that they have already started receiving the OS update. Even Poco X2 users took to Twitter to announce that they, too, have started receiving the update in the country earlier this month.
MIUI 12 promises a new UI experience enabled by reworked system-wide animations and visualisations. It comes with an improved Dark Mode that covers system apps as well as third-party ones. The new OS helps adjust screen brightness depending on the ambient light. It comes with an ultra-battery saver mode that Xiaomi claims extend the phone's standby time and reduce power consumption.
Mi 10 is also expected to receive a Magic Clone feature as part of the update that will “allow users to create and make virtual doppelgangers images or videos more interesting.” It captures the same person, or any other subject, up to four times at different intervals to create a combined image.
