Apple is famous for its updates to the latest versions of iOS. Even the oldest devices more than 4 years old receives updates. The new versions of iOS has much more errors, slower, and other lags. So, we cannot say that iOS is the best mobile operating system.
On Android market the leaders are Google’s devices, such as Nexus and Pixel. As for other manufacturers, they are not worry about updates. However, the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi cares about its customers and releases updates not only for old flagship devices, but also for budget phones. For example, MIUI 9 based on Android 6, is available on Xiaomi Mi 2 (release date 2012) and Mi 2S (2013).
Xiaomi is even better that Apple by the time of support. Also MIUI 9 is faster than all previous systems. However, today we want to talk about MIUI 10. Most of the devices of the Chinese manufacturer will be updated already this year.
Xiaomi MIUI X (10): latest news about firmware
We know about MIUI X (X is 10, just like iPhone X) from October 2017. At that time, only a few gadgets from Xiaomi received MIUI 9, but the manufacturer decided to make MIUI 10. In addition, after the release of the famous Xiaomi Mi A1, that runs on stock Android, many users seriously began to talk that the Chinese company will use only Android One. To be honest, it is stupid assumption, because there are a lot of fans of MIUI.
As for MIUI 10, the operating system does not look much different from MIUI 9, because the main innovation will be in systems of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Why do AI and machine learning?
AI and machine learning will help users improve their own experience of interacting with system. These technologies can be personalized, without any user intervention, to adjust the system’s power consumption, memory allocation, monitor the correct operation of OS, etc. It should give only positive results, as today users are fairly spoiled the optimization of the firmware, making minor features will not suit them.
Today, more and more companies are trying to implement machine learning as deeply as possible and even create processors with neuroblocks. However, the manufacture of chipsets with neuroprocessors yields fruits only in expensive devices, while firmware using AI will allow you to experience improvements on all devices in all categories.
