For more details on how to install the MIUI 10 update for the Redmi 5A via Fastboot and Recovery ROMs, you can refer to our previous guide. Do also backup your smartphone, you can learn more about that here, as the manual installation process wipes data.
The MIUI 10 stable changelog notes an all-new UI tailored for full screen devices, a natural sound system, revamp to system apps (including Clock and Notes), optimisation for Settings, and updated Android Security Patch. The update also brings camera optimisation wherein a new XXL text size option is made available.

Settings menu has also been optimised with a new design, and the Home Screen shortcut option has also been added. Lastly, the update also fixed an issue where the recording status wasn't updated in the Notification shade when a recording was paused.
The update is rolling out over-the-air (OTA), and it may be a while before all users are able to update to the latest version. You can go to Settings > About phone > System updates > Check for updates to keep checking manually. It is recommended to update the 2016 launched Redmi Note 3 after backing up data, under a strong Wi-Fi connection, and while the phone is on charge.
