Xiaomi 12 Pro Android 13 upgrade: How to Update

Xiaomi 12 Pro

It is interesting to note that the Xiaomi 12 Pro (review) was scheduled to have received
MIUI 14 based on Android 13 within the first quarter of the year, and Xiaomi has now managed to keep its promised timeline.

The update comes about six months after the first stable rollout of Android 13 on Google’s own Pixel devices, which typically mark the initiation of software upgrade rollouts for all other Android smartphone brands.

To receive the update, you can simply go through the following steps

* Access the Settings menu on your Xiaomi 12 Pro.
* Scroll down to the ‘About phone section’.
* Under this, select ‘MIUI version’. This will show the presently installed software version on your phone.
* Select ‘Check for software updates’ from within this menu. This should make the MIUI 14 version show up.
* Tap on download and install, and follow the on-screen instructions from here.

As with every software upgrade, ensure that you have all your data and essentials backed up, just in case, to ensure no accidental loss of information.

Other smartphones that are also scheduled to get the MIUI 14 based Android 13 upgrade within the first quarter include Xiaomi 13 Pro, 11 Ultra, 11T Pro, 11X Pro, 11X, 11 Lite NE 5G, Redmi Note 12 Pro and Pro+ 5G, 11 Prime 5G and K50i 5G.
