Xiaomi Redmi Note 7S Review

The latest MIUI 11 update for both the Redmi Note 7 as well as the Redmi Note 7S comes with the build number MIUI 11.05.0.PFGINXM and weighs in at 712MB. On top of the update the Redmi K20 received, this one brings the October 2019 security patch as well.

In case you want to update your Redmi Note 7/Redmi Note 7S to the latest version (provided you haven’t received the official notification already), all you need to do is to hit About Phone > System Update and click on Check for updates. From there, if the update has already arrived on your device, you can get the latest MIUI sweetness just by the tap of a button.

If in case the update is not being shown on your device as of now, you might have to wait a couple of more days to get the same. Though unconventional, sometimes even restarting the device helps the case and you might just receive the notification.
