Xiaomi Suspends MIUI Updates for Some of Its Phones, Here’s the List

Xiaomi is often very quick at rolling out software updates to its phones. The company recently sent out the MIUI 10 update to two batches of the phones including the Redmi 5 and Remdmi 5A. But the company has now announced that the Xiaomi Mi 5, Mi 4, and Redmi Note 3 Pro will no longer get MIUI updates in China. Xiaomi took to MIUI China Forum to announce the news. In the post, the company has mentioned that Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro/Redmi Note 3, Mi 5, Mi 4, Mi 4C, and Mi 4S will no longer get MIUI update. Xiaomi, however, hasn’t stated any reason on why the rollout will not happen. This is surprising considering Xiaomi is not only known for upgrading its new phones but also the company is seen bringing MIUI upgrades almost five-year-old phones too.
