Xiaomi’s MIUI skin offers a lot of interesting features and with the MIUI 12 update, the OEM has taken the game to another level. However, Xiaomi is known for delivering half-baked updates and then providing bug fixes. There have been instances where the OEM had to pull the updates because of too many issues.
There are many devices that are still running on MIUI 11 while some have received the latest MIUI 12 update. Xiaomi is constantly working on fixing the existing bugs and has already started addressing the most common ones for devices like the Redmi Note 7, Redmi K20 Pro, and more.
Earlier in the month, Xiaomi provided some of its devices running MIUI 11 and MIUI 12 with bug fixes. Also, the OEM stated that upcoming updates will bring bug fixes for issues like MIC not working, P sensor not working, random reboots while using camera, and more.
Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7S
There was an issue where the earphone MIC did not work after updating both Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7S to version V126.96.36.199.QFGINXM. Xiaomi stated that the issue was because of Google assistant and will be fixed in the next update.
Xiaomi Redmi note 7/7S top issue:
1. Earphone MIC is not working in V188.8.131.52.QFGINXM
Next OTA will fix this issue.
Reason: Since the service of Google Voice Assistant is a foreground process and is resident in memory, if you open the voice match of Google Assistant, the input thread is occupied by Google Assistant during recording, which causes the recorder to fail to create the input thread successfully, which causes the recorded data to be empty
Xiaomi Redmi 7A
After updating Redmi Note 7 to version V184.108.40.206.QCMMIXM, users reported that MIC did not work and voice messages had no sound. Again, the OEM blamed Google assistant and stated that the next update will include the fix.

Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro

Xiaomi Mi A3
In a previous report, Xiaomi also shed some light on the recent Mi A3 woes following the July security update for global users. After the initial rollout was halted, Xiaomi released a newer version to affected units as version V22.214.171.124.QFQMIXM to fix the issues at hand.
Not long after, those who never received the initial July patch picked up an update of their own as version V126.96.36.199.QFQMIXM. The July update has since found its way to European variants of the Mi A3 as well. More on that here.
It seems that Xiaomi is working hard on releasing bug fixes and resolving major issues so that users can have a smoother experience. Also, with the release of MIUI 12, Xiaomi has brought a lot of improvements.
No one likes using buggy software especially when it comes to daily drivers. Hopefully, Xiaomi strives to get rid of all major bugs before releasing the stable Android 11 update.
Meanwhile, we also have a dedicated MIUI 12 global bug tracker so be sure to check it out to know all the bugs and issues that have been addressed by the OEM so far. Also, go through our MIUI 12 update tracker if your device is yet to receive it.
