MIUI 7.1 is here with new features

Posted by

MIUI 7.1 is live and already seeding to Xiaomi devices. It arrived on my Mi 4 this evening. This latest update to Xiaomi’s custom UI brings lots of new features, including: support for hidden folders in File Explorer, a new Doodle tool for image editing in Gallery, data saver for saving up to 50% on internet data usage, 6 text sizes, enhanced homescreen speed, faster browser launching speed, and a new Mi Drop app for transferring files.


This stable update is 673MB in size and still based on Android Kitkat. If you have a supported Xiaomi smartphone and have set it to download updates automatically, the MIUI 7.1 update should kick in any moment from now.

  1. hello Mr. Mo You said it’s still based on android kitkat? but the Redmi Note 3 Prime runs lollipop so it shouldn’t be based on kitkat (checked for the update on a unit I have for sale and nothing came up).
