New fingerprint animations

One of the highlights of MIUI 12 was its wide range of animations for the in-display fingerprint scanner. The trend will continue to the new 12.1 too. There will be a lot of animations that the user can download through the store.

New designs in Always-on-Display!

Like we said above, MIUI has one of the best customizations for both the fingerprint animation and the always-on-display styles. We can do a ton of customizations in MIUI.

Secure keyboard

Finally, Xiaomi is coming with a secure keyboard that we can use while typing passwords. So, that no one will peep into your keyboard, and steal your data.

Fresh App vault

Another step for increasing the user’s privacy. Xiaomi has provided an all-new vault app. It comes with a new UI that is inspired from iOS. As seen in the screenshot, you will get certain shortcuts for accessing that.

Improved Weather app!

The weather app is also testing by the brand. It improves the overall performance comparing with the current weather app.

Camera filters!

One of the reasons why I love Xiaomi’s camera app. It has a lot of functionality, and the main one includes these camera filters. These things can take the things into next level.

Accessibility Settings!

Currently, the accessibility settings are placed in a mess. However, Xiaomi seems to improve with the new update. There will be four different tabs named General, Vision, Hearing, and Physical in which the corresponding settings will be present.
