The international versions of the Xiaomi Pad 5 are scheduled to receive the Android 12 upgrade in the coming weeks. The update has started to show up on a small batch of devices with a wider release to happen soon. For those who can’t wait, there is also a manual update option. The Pad 5 was released with Android 11 and MIUI 12.5 last year. With the new update, it will be updated to Android 12 with MIUI 13.1, as well as the most recent September security patch.
If you have a global unit, check for version 126.96.36.199.SKXMIXM, and if you have a European model, look for version 188.8.131.52.SKXEUXM, these two files will bring your Pad up to speed. Besides the latest Android version and security patch, not much is noted in the changelog of either update. But MIUI 13 adds new widgets, enhances security and smart home integration, freshens the look, and does much more.
