Xiaomi revolutionized the OS space when it announced HyperOS in October. The HyperOS will power the entire Xiaomi ecosystem of devices and claims to offer a much better user experience. The HyperOS is completely free for all eligible devices and comes pre-installed on Xiaomi 14 Series, Xiaomi Watch S3, Xiaomi TV S Pro Mini LED, and some more devices.

The HyperOS is built on the foundations of Linux and Vela System, making it a better upgrade over MIUI. It is faster, lighter, and loaded with new features. The article talks about the goals, features, eligible devices, and rollout timeline of Xiaomi HyperOS.

1. Comprehensive Refactoring

With Xiaomi’s growing product portfolio came the problem of complexities due to the multitude of operating systems. To bring coherence to the OS across devices, Xiaomi created HyperOS. It will unify all devices and offer seamless connectivity across the entire Xiaomi portfolio.

The HyperOS supports RAM sizes as small as 64kB to as large as 24GB. The HyperOS itself is lightweight with a size of just 8.75MB.

2. Cross-Device Intelligent Connectivity

Xiaomi HyperOS features a cross-device intelligent connectivity framework called HyperConnect. Using this, one can easily control nearly all their connected devices, allowing them to monitor and manage their device network from anywhere, anytime.

3. Proactive Intelligence

HyperMind is the brain of the brand’s ecosystem. It allows devices to connect proactively and uses 4 capabilities- environment, vision, sound, and behavior to learn about user requirements and adapt devices as per needs.

4. End-to-End Security

User privacy and security are becoming more and more important nowadays. Xiaomi too aims to offer better safety via HyperOS. It focuses on security to not only connected devices but also to interconnected security modules.

Xiaomi HyperOS: Best Features

1. Getting bloatware on devices is annoying, especially when you spend a huge amount on flagships and still get unnecessary apps pre-installed. Xiaomi has taken a huge step to change things in this regard. HyperOS allows users to uninstall all the pre-installed bloatware. Whether it is the Mi Video app or the Security app, all can be uninstalled if you don’t need them. Now, users have complete control over what they want to keep on their devices.

2. The Xiaomi HyperOS offers a revamped animation language. This makes the interaction of the user more intuitive. There is a natural color palette for freshness and a design that makes your device look even better.

3. Lock screen customization has been made way better with Xiaomi HyperOS. The OS allows putting a picture of oneself on the lock screen and toggling the depth effect to give it an even better look. The clock and date go behind the face of the one in the picture. There are various lock screen designs and styles including Classic, Rhombus, and Magazine. The text and clock style can also be changed. There is a customized AOD for an immersive experience. Just like Apple when you long press on your lock screen, you get an option to customize it the way you want to. There are different styles to play around which makes the experience more fun than ever before. You can customize fonts, their colors, and style and apply filters as well. The wallpaper that you use can also be modified using the depth effect.

4. The system font now supports multiple writing systems thus encouraging inclusivity while the redesigned weather app goes beyond basic information and conveys how the weather feels outside. Notifications focus on what’s important and icons come in new shapes and colors for a richer experience.

5. The Control center has been made cleaner to offer a faster experience. There are no icon names so it looks like iOS and once you get used to it, there is no turning back. You just have to swipe down to access the entire control center. There is no sideways swapping. If you want to add more options to the control center you can and all these will be visible when one swipes down. A media player tile right there has been added to the control panel. It allows accessing the settings menu in landscape mode which makes controlling smart devices even more easily.

6. As mentioned earlier, Xiaomi aims to improve privacy with HyperOS. The privacy and security page has all the app permissions listed clearly so you can check without wasting time. Shutdown confirmation prevents your device from being switched off without using a PIN or pattern. This comes in handy when the device has been stolen or someone is trying to fool around as they won’t be able to switch off your device without entering the PIN.

7. HyperOS has rolled out a redesigned gallery app to make the user experience even better. Earlier the gallery app had 2 panels at the top, now these are visible at the bottom alongside a 3rd new panel, namely recommendations. The Recommendations tab now has a new bonus ID feature which allows the creation of ID cutouts and photos for me. You can now copy, save, or send these cutouts with one tap.

8. Multitasking has gotten simpler on HyperOS. Features like split-screen and floating windows have become more intuitive as there is now an indicator at the top of the screen that allows you to switch between floating windows and normal mode with a tap. It is even more useful in devices like tablets. HyperOS also allows the grouping of icons by color for a neater and easier experience.

9. Xiaomi has also jumped on the AI bandwagon with HyperOS. Now it will be able to do things like turn lights on automatically when you enter a room. There is an AI-based image editing tool that allows you to select a subject by long pressing it and then copying it to send it to others or edit the background however you like. Editing abilities include erasing objects, applying bokeh effects, and a bunch of other stuff.

10. If you have lots of apps on your home screen, you will like Xiaomi HyperOS. The brand has redesigned most of the widget icons giving it a bold look and these make the display look even better. You can even download some app widgets separately.

11. The camera app has a refresh option now so instead of going to the screen at the top to access the settings, one can now swipe down to access them. Some high-end phones running MIUI 14 already allowed the functionality earlier, but now with HyperOS, it will be rolled out to all the devices.

12. HyperOS is a very lightweight OS which is the best thing about it. It takes only 8.76GB of internal storage and gives ample room to work on your device. HyperOS is one of those few OSes that weigh under 10GB. MIUI used to be cluttered and that made it stutter. Now HyperOS has been optimized well so animations are smooth and it never one feel that the device is slowing down.
