“We are developing a new version of MIUI that will be built without pre-installation of any of the blocked apps,” said Xiaomi in a statement. The new MIUI will be rolled out in a phased manner in the coming weeks.
Xiaomi also clarified the issue with the MIUI Cleaner app using Clean Master that is banned by the government. The company said that MIUI Cleaner is an independent app and it is not using Clean Master and that the company is following the ban enforced by the government.
Xiaomi further said that since 2018, 100% data of Indian users are stored on servers that are located in India and “none of this data is shared with anyone outside of India”.
All upcoming Xiaomi smartphones will come with the update software without Mi Browser or any other app that is banned by the Indian government, said the company.
