No, MiOS will not Replace MIUI (Yet). MIUI 15 in Development!

And if it does, it’s probably going to be China-only.

According to Xiaomi Insiders, instead of MIUI 15, MIOS will come into play. Earlier rumors suggest that MIOS is a standalone Operating System based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), like early versions of Huawei’s HarmonyOS.

This report came first from the tech community’s most trusted tipster, Digital Chat Station. The account or entity is confident that MIUI is soon going to be replaced.

There are about 600 million active users that use MIUI 14, the latest MIUI version.

However, a report from XiaomiUI debunked the claim that MiOS will be replacing MIUI simply because they found a code that contains a MIUI 15 string which proves that Xiaomi is testing and is releasing MIUI 15 at the end of October. According to the website, this information was sourced from the official Xiaomi server and is therefore reliable, truthful, and accurate.

Moreover, MIUI 15 is already being tested on some of the company’s greatest flagship phones like the Mix Fold 3, Redmi K60 Pro, and Xiaomi 13 Ultra.

Though Xiaomi purchased the link, that only goes to show that MiOS may be in development but it’s strictly limited for Chinese users. Releasing a standalone OS when Android and iOS dominates the market is a huge risk, and Xiaomi is still free to communicate and trade with US-based companies, so doing this might just kill their large customer base. From a business standpoint, that’s a stupid and nonsensical move.
