Xiaomi is steadily rolling out the MIUI 11 update to a series of its eligible smartphones. The rollout that began last month can now be found enhancing some of the devices. While the latest user interface is optimizing the experience on the devices, it is itself becoming even more productive by gaining some new features.
According to a report, Xiaomi is planning to provide new features that will specifically aim at students. Bringing the student-focused features make sense because the majority of the user base of Xiaomi’s smartphones are students.
The first reported feature is a new Focus Mode which works similar to the Zen Mode in OnePlus phones. This means students will be able to set a time duration during which the phone will go in an idle state where they will not be able to access anything. The Focus Mode will only allow for making emergency calls and taking photos. It is said to be a baked-in feature that will soon arrive via an update. The feature will keep a track of how long you’ve used the phone. You can turn on Focus Mode in Settings by going into Screen Time Management.
The second feature is customizable lock screens which bring even more customization power. This feature allows users to customize the notification icons and even the text colors alongside selecting your favorite colors, captions, pictures, and even emojis.
The final feature is Curriculum Mode which is a student-oriented calendar that lets them jot down important notes for any given day.
We may soon hear about the update coming to the MIUI 11 which will unlock these features for the students and help them organize their tasks better.
