Xiaomi Redmi 1S Finally Gets Stable MIUI 6 UpdateBy cheatmaster 03:31 Mon, 26 Jul 2021 Comments
Back in February, Xiaomi released the first beta build of its MIUI 6 Read-Only Memory (ROM) for the Redmi 1S. And here we are, many months later, and this has now become stable enough to go out to Redmi 1S owners across the globe as an over-the-air update.
The long testing period should hopefully have managed to iron out all the bugs, and thus today's release has been deemed stable. The full changelog is available at the Source link below.
The news comes straight from Xiaomi's official forum. The version of MIUI currently going out is 22.214.171.124. Obviously it may hold a few days for the update mechanism to notify you about the recent build, but many people have already received it.
MIUI 6 debuted last August, and it's currently the latest iteration of Xiaomi's UI overlay that sits atop Android. Up until now, the very affordable Redmi 1S was stuck on the older MIUI 5, unlike Xiaomi's higher-discontinue devices. However, do note that by all accounts underneath the nice looking MIUI 6 interface still lurks Android 4.4 KitKat, a version of Google's Operating System (OS) that's ancient by mobile world standards.
Thanks for the tip, JAI!
