For years, users have compared Xiaomi terminals a lot with Apple devices . Not for nothing has the Asian giant received the pseudonym “The Apple of China”.
Of course, in terms of specifications there are notable differences, but when it comes to their design, both internal and external, they come to resemble each other quite a bit. In fact, your Xiaomi allows you to use gestures as if it were an iPhone .
So you can use iPhone gestures on your Xiaomi
MIUI is a customization layer full of interesting tricks . Among these, we can find one that allows you to use gestures to move around on your Xiaomi, just as if it were an iPhone . If you want to change the typical navigation buttons, then follow these steps:
- Go into Settings .
- Head over to Home Screen .
- Next, tap on ' System Navigation '.
- Now, select ' Full Screen Gestures '.
- Once selected, the system will ask you if you want to learn what the navigation gestures are. You can skip the tutorial if you want.
In this way, the system of your Xiaomi will work with gestures, in the same way that an iPhone would. You can head to the home screen just by swiping up from the bottom. You can also open the multitasking manager , go back , open menus in various applications and switch between apps.
Of course, to make your Xiaomi look even more like an iPhone, it is recommended to use two complementary options for gesture navigation. These are: ' Double check gestures ' and ' Go back to the previous app ', which will allow you to enjoy a much more complete experience.
The first switch is designed so that the user does not accidentally leave an application . So if you're playing games or watching videos in full screen, you'll need to perform the gesture twice for it to work.
On the other hand, the second switch allows the user to return to the previous application . Note that there is no longer a back button, so this gesture replaces the function of that button. Simply swipe from the edge of the screen and hold for a second to interact.
