“MIUI 12.5 is an intermediate update based on MIUI 12 with a strong focus on system optimizations. After a complete revamp of the system UI, its CPU usage was reduced by up to 22% while power consumption – by up to 15%, ensuring frictionless performance and graphics,” reads the official blog.

The company also claimed that in the second half of the year more phones will receive the MIUI12.5 update. The MIUI 12.5 revamped the entire UI which allays the CPU usage by up to 22 percent. As per the company, previously the gesture and other tasks were rendered on a single thread which queues tasks and overloads the thread which causes lags. However, in MIUI 12.5 the gestures have their dedicated thread that ensures the tasks are carried to the CPU without any delay and delivers instant response.

“Another highlight of MIUI 12.5 is uninstallable system apps. The vast majority of apps in the new system can be uninstalled, while a small number of apps that are engraved in the system core can be hidden,” reads the Mi blog post.
