Home screen and gestures
Some of the built-in icons have a redesigned design compared to the older MIUI 11 (left), but the biggest change is the replacement of the control buttons with a single indicator.
It will be used for gestures that will provide new control of the system.
The notification center underwent a major design change. Its controls are more accessible and larger. And very similar to that from iOS.
A great feature is splitting, if you swipe up to the right, you get to the notification center with shortcuts, and if you swipe up to the left, you'll see notifications.

You will be able to customize selected controls and place the modes you use the most in a convenient place for quick access.
The Weather app is also part of the Xiaomi superstructure. It will undergo a design change in the twelfth generation and the new font or layout of elements is adapted to comfortable operation on a large display. The information is supplemented by new pictures of the current weather.

Safety, Battery consumption
The MIUI Security application has also undergone a change and, compared to the old version, will offer an improved design, updated animations, but above all detailed statistics on battery consumption, application rankings and their battery usage, etc.
The adaptation of the new design was also reflected in this section of settings. This time, the distribution of storage consumption is clearly displayed in the bar graph. The chart is enriched with a description of individual items.
The note-taking application is popular with a really wide range of users. A novelty is the possibility of check boxes that will turn your notes into a shopping or other personal list.
