The purchase of a new device, as in the case of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, does not automatically mean having the software and the app perfectly updated. Let’s find out how to make updates for the new Xiaomi Redmi Note 7. To better protect this device, we recommend evaluating the purchase of a safety cover and a film or a tempered glass.
Smartphone new but not updated?
This is certainly not a mistake. When you buy a smartphone of the latest generation, as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, you definitely have the latest version of the operating system (in this case Android 9 Pie) and that of the system interface (the MIUI 10). The pre-installed apps (those of Google, Facebook, etc.) are in the latest version released at the time of production of the smartphone. Any updates are obviously not present. Just as there are no security patch updates and any minor versions of both the MIUI and the recently released operating system. That’s why it is always recommended after purchasing a smartphone to check for updates and install them all before starting to configure and use the device. Speech that obviously applies to our Xiaomi Redmi Note that you can buy on GearBest at 265.50 euros.
As for other smartphones also the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 provides automatic updates (OTA). When Android or Xiaomi release a new version of their systems on the smartphone, a notification will appear informing you of the availability for downloading these updates. Unless the automatic download has been set, you must confirm both the download and the installation of each single update.
The notification of these updates, however, is not timely as the release is performed gradually and according to internal criteria to the respective companies. The advice is to manually check from the internal settings of the operating system.
As an alternative, Xiaomi also provides for the possibility of manually uploading and installing some updates, using the appropriate operator present in the MIUI. To proceed with this operation, after having performed a fundamental backup, you must go (directly from the smartphone) on the MIUI Downloads page and download the latest update related to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7. Once you have downloaded the file you need to enter the Settings of the smartphone, select System Info, then System Updates. From this screen, you must select in the top right icon with the three dots and select Choose the update package. Through the screen that opens you must access the Downloads folder and select the file you just downloaded. After the automatic checks, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 will complete the manual update.
Update the apps
Regarding the update of the applications on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 or those subsequently installed, the procedure is the same as the other smartphones. In fact, it is sufficient to open the Play Store, select (by pressing the key with the three horizontal lines) My apps and games and press the Update all or only on the one next to the app you want to update. Even for app updates, often the operating system sends a notification indicating the presence of one or more updates, from which to choose whether to proceed or not.
Update Xiaomi Redmi Note 7: Super Night Mode
So far we have talked about the “theory”, we can move on to “practice”. Last January 25, Xiaomi has effectively released an update that provides for the introduction on Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 of Super Night Mode, a feature already present on previous Xiaomi devices. With the Super Night Mode, the level of photographic shots is further improved, thanks to a higher quality of sharpness and lighting. Using a 48MP main photosensor, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 will benefit greatly from this first system update.
