He said that he is using a Nova Launcher and Muzei alongside Bing wallpapers to update screen lock on a daily basis but after MIUI 11 update, it doesn’t seem to be working as good as before.

What is the solution? The lock screen is sponsored by advertisements from India and China, according to other users on the same page. Nonetheless, no such supply of ads is available in the MIUI and this could be an unchangeable default UI environment.

Xiaomi Mi 9T is a sensational smartphone with a pop-up camera configuration – but it faces some issues after MIUI 11 update. A user has reported that it crashes the smartphone randomly. Another user posted on MI Community Forum the same problem occurred after installing MIUI 11 update.

Although we aren’t damn sure about this tip -helping the users, but it’s a bold move to give it a try. Otherwise, you can rely on Xiaomi to fix the problem through a software update, so keep an eye on it.

Dynamic fonts are most likely to be available for the Chinese language only and wouldn’t work with a European language. However, it’s most likely that this will come with the latest Android 10 update.
