July 22, 2023:
Last month, Xiaomi refreshed its EOS Product List page, mentioning the details of the June 2023 update and the list of eligible devices. And sadly, the Chinese tech giant confirmed that the 10 Xiaomi models had reached the end of the support period, which means no longer maintain any software or firmware updates (including security updates) for the products included in the EOS product list below,
Xiaomi keeps rolling out its devices’ latest security patches and major MIUI software updates. Consequently, Xiaomi devices are among the most updated devices in the market. Conversely, the company continues pushing the non-eligible devices to the end-of-life (EOL) lists.
What does the Xiaomi EOS List mean?
The Xiaomi EOS listing means the Chinese tech giant is ending support life for the devices. For those unaware of whether or not their device will receive the update, the EOS listing basically signifies that your device has reached the end of official support from the company. This means that the device is finally out of date and there is a risk involved as it will no longer receive any security patch updates. So by this time, upgrading to a newer model is generally recommended.
Why Software Updates Matter:
Software updates are very important, as they can help fix bugs and problems before they happen. Smartphones also require regular maintenance and regular updates to perform at their best. Having the latest patches and firmware can help prevent software crashes.
On the flip side, today, we will acknowledge that Xiaomi devices will not be getting any MIUI and Android OS software updates in the near future. Because these software products often need to fit properly in certain handsets due to their outdated and incompatible mechanisms. As a result, the brand will have to push such devices to the EOS Product List and stop updating distribution for them. It may no longer respond to security vulnerability reports for them either.
No more software updates for these Xiaomi devices:
- Redmi 10X Pro (CN)
- Redmi Note 9 (EEA)
- Redmi Note 9 (ID)
- Redmi Note 9 (GLOBAL)
- Redmi 9 (CN)
- Redmi 10X 4G (CN)
- Redmi 9A (GLOBAL)
- Redmi K30i 5G (CN)
- POCO F2 Pro (GLOBAL)
If you want to experience the new Android OS, custom ROMs are already available in the market so that you can experience the latest Android operating system for free. Though custom ROM flashing is not easy, normal users tend to stop operating it to avoid the risks of phone brick.
