In recent weeks, Xiaomi has been bringing MIUI 13 to a large part of its smartphone catalog . Since January, the different phases of deployment have been carried out gradually , although with certain complaints from users.
Although there are still devices to update, MIUI 13 has been deployed in such a way that only some users have automatically received said update. But why does this happen?
If your Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO hasn't received MIUI 13 and you know from other users, that with the same device, if they have been able to update, don't worry… everything has its reason and we will explain it below.
Why your Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO has not yet received MIUI 13
Being an update as important as MIUI 13 is, Xiaomi usually carries out this update in a staggered manner . Therefore, the same update can first reach a small number of users and after a few weeks another group.
Thanks to this, Xiaomi manages to reduce the failure rate , not when deploying an update, but in the event that the update itself contains an error. If it is first deployed to a small number of users, they will report it and therefore it will not reach everyone in a general way .
But it does not finish here. A large part of the updates that we have been seeing in recent days have been released under the Mi Pilot program . Therefore, if you are not part of it, it will take a little longer to receive it.
Remember that to be part of the My Pilot program, the alternative to the missing Global Beta , you can do so by following these steps . Also, there is a little trick to receive the updates before the rest , following these steps:
- Go to Settings > My device (About phone) > MIUI version
- After that, we will only have to click on the three points on the top menu and access Update Settings .
- Next we will activate the option Receive updates before .
Is MIUI 13 really available for your Xiaomi?
In addition to what we have explained above, your device may not have actually received MIUI 13 yet . There are two variants of each device, one Global and one European, differing from each other when receiving an update:
- MIUI Global (MI) : It is installed on all those Xiaomi purchased in Global version outside of Europe. For example if we buy it from China or in Latin America. Its nomenclature does differ because it contains the letters "MI".
- European MIUI (EU) : It is the one that is installed on any Xiaomi device officially acquired in Spain or another European country. Its nomenclature does differ because it contains the letters "EU" or "EEA".
It is therefore that if, for example, your Redmi Note 10 has a European ROM and has only been updated to MIUI 13 through the Global ROM, you will have to continue waiting for the deployment to be carried out for your particular variant as well .
