Just days after seeding the Redmi 5A with a stable update to MIUI 10, Xiaomi is now rolling out a similar update to this year’s Redmi 6 Pro and the first generation Mi Max as well as Mi Max Prime smartphones. All three devices are now receiving the MIUI 10 stable package with fullscreen gestures and a redesigned UI.
The update shifts the device firmware to version V10.0.1.0.ODMMIFH on the Redmi 6 Pro and V10.1.1.0.NBDMIFI on the Mi Max and Max Prime devices. The update is a lot bulkier on the Redmi 6 Pro as it weighs in at 609 MB compared to the 307MB package of the Mi Max duo.
The update brings major changes like Full-screen gestures, Redesigned Notification Panel, Redesigned Volume Sliders, natural sound system, Improved multitasking management, redesigned notification panel and a host of AI centric features. The recent apps are now shown in card-like format and there’s a new Driving Mode that takes advantage of Xiaomi’s virtual assistant to control the smartphone in the car.
While the MIUI 10 update finds its way through a regular OTA update on the Redmi 6 Pro, the update needs to be sideloaded on the Mi Max and Mi Max Prime through a recovery ROM or fastboot ROM. The Redmi update is based on Android Oreo while the Mi Max duo is still stuck on Android Nougat even after the update.
