MIUI 13 for Pad promises new productivity boosts for the Xiaomi Pad 5
Xiaomi hit a home run with its Xiaomi Pad 5 and Pad 5 Pro tablet releases, with the latter slate scoring especially well in our thorough tests. The tablets were launched with MIUI 12.5 for Pad, and they will soon be updated to MIUI 13 along with many of Xiaomi’s newer smartphone releases. According to one of the company’s official Weibo channels, Pad 5 owners can expect a couple of productivity boosts at least.
The first one is somewhat typically vague for Xiaomi, with the promo image claiming the top 3,000 applications have been “fully adapted” for MIUI 13 for Pad, so that Xiaomi Pad 5 owners can use any of these apps knowing that they have been full optimized for their tablet. While it’s likely the claim will refer to the most popular apps used in China, many of them will also be globally popular, so this optimization should benefit international users of the Pad 5 and Pad 5 Pro.
The next update that will be brought in by the MIUI 13 Pad update is much more specific: Users will be able to multitask more freely on the Xiaomi Pad 5 thanks to dual-window capability. The same app, such as a browser, will be able to be opened in two windows, allowing the user to carry out multitasking activities such as shopping and reading product reviews at the same time. MIUI 13 for Pad will be launched at the Xiaomi event taking place on December 28, which starts at 19:30 China time.
