You can throw it away. Xiaomi has deprived more than 65 models of smartphones of Android updates

The Chinese corporation Xiaomi is one of the largest manufacturers of electronics, and its branded products are hugely popular and popular around the globe. This brand has proven itself for the best value for money, as its products are relatively inexpensive, but at the same time offers users a stunning set of user experience. However, the brand’s products have one weak link, and this is the release date of new operating systems based on Android. In this regard, the company is very far from Apple, which fully updates its phones in five years.

And so, as it became known, this electronics manufacturer has announced extremely unpleasant news, which is unlikely to be satisfied. The company has decided to leave 68 models of smartphones based on the Android operating system without firmware updates and without security patches. In practice, this means that none of these phones will receive any updates at all, because they will be discontinued forever. All such mobile devices can be discarded, because it will soon be dangerous to use them, because no one will close the identified security breaches, which means that attackers will be able to use them.

Xiaomi has announced that it has decided to stop updating the software update of 68 smartphone models released over the years. All of these phones have reached the End of Support (EOS) cycle, which involves refusing to further release new firmware and security updates. All users of these mobile devices are advised to buy a new modern model as soon as possible to continue to use new technologies and remain under reliable protection. It should be noted that this list is relevant for both China and the international market. Simply put, it doesn’t matter in which country the smartphone was bought, because its software support is now completely discontinued.

Starting from April 4, 2022, smartphones Mi 1, Mi 2, Mi 2A, Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi 4C, Mi 5, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi 5c, Mi 5X, Mi 6 will stop receiving any updates.
