Back in November, Huawei started rolling out its latest EMUI 10 update to the Huawei P30 and the Huawei P30 Pro devices. Back then, the update was exclusive to the Chinese devices. As it turns out, the Huawei P30 Pro smartphones in India, too, have started receiving the Android 10-based EMUI 10 update. Let’s have a look at the features and the changelog of the EMUI 10 update for the Huawei P30 Pro devices.
Huawei P30 Pro Devices Start Receiving Android 10-based EMUI 10 Update in India
Before we start talking about the features of the latest EMUI 10 update, it is worth talking about the pre-update formalities. The reason as to why we are talking about this is the fact that the update package weighs in somewhere around 4.4GB. In order to download such a huge update, one needs to have a pretty stable data plan (and an unmetered one at that). In case you are relying on a limited data plan, you might have to switch to a nearby Wi-Fi zone to download this update.
Furthermore, it is always a good idea to take a backup of your sensitive data before hitting the update button. Secondly, the update won’t show up by default in your settings menu. We tried experimenting with our unit and succeeded to get the update from the HiCare app. If you are also facing a similar issue, you might want to try finding out the update this way. Now is the time to know the features of the EMUI 10 update.
With the latest EMUI 10 update, the Huawei P30 Pro smartphones show notifications and time even when the screen is turned off, as the newest update brings the always-on display to the devices. The display style can be tweaked as per the user liking, and it is available right in the settings menu.
The new EMUI 10 update for the Huawei P30 Pro brings about a visual overhaul throughout the UI. The icons are now more polished and subtle, the notification shade is now translucent (a first for EMUI), and the settings menu is also redesigned and conforms to the current Android 10 standards. The update also brings with it new wallpapers and a plethora of themes. The gallery app, caller app, and other native apps have got redesigned.
So far, the Huawei P30 Pro devices had only a single home screen interface wherein all the apps used to be stacked, much like iOS. After the update, however, there is an added option to use an app drawer which might be liked by many.
Added Native Dark Mode
The dark mode was already available in the Huawei P30 Pro devices, but the latest EMUI 11 update makes it deeply integrated throughout the device’s ecosystem. The stock apps now support a pitch Black interface. Moreover, the majority of the apps that we tested on our device now support Dark Mode (WhatsApp, Chrome, Slack, Gmail, etc. work without any bug whatsoever).
Bug Fixes and Security
Alongside the features that we mentioned above, the latest EMUI 10 update brings various bug fixes and the latest security patch to the Huawei P30 Pro devices.
