Fact Check: Is Xiaomi Developing Its Own new Operating System Named “MIOS”?

The rumor mill has once again started circulating an old rumor about Xiaomi developing a new operating system called MIOS. This information was first reported in November, but there has been no confirmation from Xiaomi regarding this matter.

Let’s dive in and investigate whether the information about Xiaomi developing a new operating system called MIOS is accurate or not. Today, social media was abuzz with screenshots claiming that Xiaomi is working on a new OS. However, as we all know, not every piece of information found on the internet is true. Therefore, we did some fact-checking and came across a quote from renowned tipster Kacper Skrzypek regarding this matter.

According to Kacper Skrzypek, the information about Xiaomi developing a new operating system called MIOS is not true. He confirmed this on his Twitter account with the following statement: “No, it’s NOT true! That screenshot appeared on one of the Chinese sites in November, before MIUI 14 launch. It’s a Photoshopped image. Think logically: if they developed it, why didn’t they abandon MIUI?”.

He even shared a screenshot of a post in which it was written Just kidding, just for fun in Chinese.

After doing some further research, we discovered a blog article on Gizchina from as far back as 2014, indicating that this is not a new rumor but rather an old one.

Even if we consider the possibility of Xiaomi developing a new operating system, why would they invest a huge sum of money in R&D to create one from scratch while they already have MIUI? We searched for any official information about this new OS on their website but found nothing. Based on our research, we believe that this information about Xiaomi developing a new operating system “MIOS” is false.
