Xiaomi teases HyperOS 2.0 with iOS-Style recent apps menu

In a surprising turn of events, Xiaomi has teased what appears to be the future of its fan-favorite Operating System. The upcoming, accidently shared screenshot on Xiaomi HyperOS Instagram account showed substantial changes in the user interface, suggesting that it is closer to iOS-style navigation. This leak is coming eight months after Xiaomi made an audacious move away from MIUI and embraced HyperOS as its new operating system.

A Move Toward an iOS-Style Recent Apps Menu

The shared screenshot reveals a new Recent Apps menu design, called “Pile Up,” which is a departure from the vertical card view and horizontal list that users have been accustomed to since MIUI 10. The style of the new layout reminds one of the iOS recent apps interface, which uses a beautiful overlapping stack of used applications so that one can just side-scroll and select from the many used apps. By intending to introduce this feature, Xiaomi realizes a strategic twist toward a more intuitive and friendly design, similar to the simplicity and elegance of iOS.

Community Engagement and Feedback

An accidental reveal by Xiaomi wasn’t just a tell; it was a call to action for the Xiaomi’s community. Asking the company asked, which recent apps menu do you like?.

The options were for the earlier vertical and horizontal menus, as in HyperOS 1.0, and then the new iOS “Pile Up” view as the third option. This is truly a representative approach where Xiaomi is committed to user-centric design, involving the community to express choices and finally get influenced in consuming HyperOS 2.0

The picture for the poll illustrated clearly what the new recent style will be, offering a first look at what might be in store for the user interface on their device. By including a “Pile Up” option in the poll, Xiaomi wants to measure interest in this feature and, most importantly, ensure its users are an essential part of the development process.

Anticipation for HyperOS 2.0

November is just around the corner, launching HyperOS 2.0, and the enthusiasm in the Xiaomi community can be felt. This upgrade seems promising, with significant improvements and refinements of the operating system software beyond the already excellent groundwork laid by HyperOS 1.0. One such recent improvement is the iOS-style recent apps menu, which will bring the facility of swiping between recent apps—a UI beauty that promises an even more fluid and engaging user experience.

If anything, it was an accidental confirmation of how dynamic and fast-paced technology companies are, particularly firms like Xiaomi that have made continuous product improvement central to their competitiveness. Listening to users and making constant improvements in its software has put Xiaomi rightly at the top of the league to become a leader in the global smartphone market. So, indeed, the much-anticipated happening from Xiaomi was not an update but rather a herald to the mission envisagement of a more connected and intuitive mobile experience through HyperOS 2.0.

    Yes, actually HyperOS is IOS in the Android world, previously users had to Root to be able to mod it but HyperOS 2.0 is an official feature 🤨

    Let’s see if they make the HyperOS calendar widget work, as well as the analog clock widgets, so that where there is one, the digital one doesn’t appear in the status bar.

    Please don’t try to put features similar to an iPhone, there’s a reason I have and I only buy Redmi or Xiaomi, don’t do that to me, I hate the iPhone interface, and also fix the clock interface with Weather Status, which doesn’t work. Thank you
