New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on December 19, 2020) follows:

Google began rolling out the stable Android 11 update in September after months of beta testing where other OEMs such as Xiaomi also participated.

The first phones to bag the Android 11 beta from Xiaomi were the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. Not much later, the company rolled out the new Android version for the Redmi K30 Pro.

And over the weeks and months, several other phones from Xiaomi got the update to Android 11 via the MIUI closed beta channel.

Cut to now, the stable update is available on a bunch of phones including the Xiaomi Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Poco F2 Pro, Redmi K30 Pro, and Redmi Note 9 Pro (IN).

At present, the Chinese OEM has rolled out the new Android version alongside its MIUI 12 skin. However, we can expect to see several phones get Android 11 with MIUI 12.5 or even MIUI 13 down the line.

Xiaomi is known for adding a host of new features and improvements with its MIUI updates rather than Android version upgrades.

Hence, there should be no significant changes after you get the new Android version on your Xiaomi phone since MIUI version updates and Android version updates aren’t tied together for Xiaomi phones in general.

That being said, even though Xiaomi is yet to release Android 11 for many eligible phones from its portfolio, users who managed to score the update have come across a few bugs and issues after installing the update.

Of course, most software updates come with their fair share of bugs which are often ironed out with the following monthly patches or hotfixes. So there’s no reason to worry if you encounter a bug since the OEM is likely to fix it sooner rather than later.

For this very reason, we’ve created this article in order to help you keep track of the status of all reported bugs and issues on Xiaomi phones running on Android 11.
