Xiaomi Stops All Software Support For These 10 Smartphones, Tablets: Redmi K20, Mi Pad 4 & More
Xiaomi has shared the names of devices that will no longer enjoy software support.
What Is EOS?
A total of 10 devices have been included in the company’s end-of-support (EOS) list.
End-of-support (EOS) basically means that the device or system will no longer receive any firmware and security updates anymore.
Xiaomi has a fast device upgrade cycle, forcing it to add more devices to its EOS list than any other smartphone manufacturer.
The devices that are a part of this have spent upwards of two years since their launch and at least one Android update.
The Redmi Note 7 series was released three years ago and has enjoyed just one Android OS upgrade.
The Redmi K20, which is probably the most popular in the list, is also about 3 years old.
The Mi Pad 4 was the company’s last tablet before re-entering the market this year with the Xiaomi Pad 5.
Ineligible For MIUI 13
Generally, most OEMs have a maximum of two firmware upgrades in the lifetime of a device. This could span a number of years
Most Xiaomi phones are eligible for two Android versions, which is why none of these 10 devices got the latest MIUI 13 version.
Since these are now outdated, Xiaomi will also discontinue the regular security updates for the 10 devices.
