Key UI Changes
Xiaomi has been working very hard to refine the user interface since the past few releases. Xiaomi have packed MIUI 12 with the most minimal and clean UI (User interface) and also the data and status visualization that has been added in the Mi Account, Settings, etc. This makes the settings look more organized and also easy to understand for the users.

Mi health will also send sedentary remainder and help female users to keep track of menstrual cycles. This app also works without a fitness tracker. Just keep the phone beside you while sleeping, and phone tracks your sleep.
Xiaomi has adopted a three-step approach to improve privacy in MIUI12.
First, Flare scans all the apps of the phone and present you a list of apps that may be out of line and violate your privacy. MIUI 12 also gives you advice to regard this and take back control back to your hands.
Second, Barbed wire builds on the privacy improvements of in Android 10. It does not allow and does not even show the “Always allow button” if the app does not specify what it requires the permission for.
Finally, Mask system lets users create and share virtual Id’s with apps on their MIUI 12. We already saw similar implementations in Apple IOS13 and color os 7.
It gives users more control on what data you share with an app.
