Still, unfortunately, it is not possible to remove some predefined applications, such as the weather, the browser, etc.
Not everyone likes the system apps that Xiaomi has over time packaged for MIUI, the proprietary interface of the Chinese technology giant.
Many find not only a particular annoyance in the fact that it is Xiaomi who decides for them which application to use for specific functions but also that this drain the battery and consume precious MB of RAM.
1. Open your phone’s Settings and then enter the “My Device” menu. Now click seven times on the “MIUI version” field until the message “You are a developer” is displayed.
2. Go back to the “Settings” menu and enter the one called “Additional Settings.” Among the latest entries, you will find the one dedicated to the “Developer Options.” From here, you must activate the “USB Debugging” option by confirming the required permission.
3. Always from the “Developer Options” also activate the items “Install via USB” and “USB Debugging (security settings).” For these items, and active Mi Account is required on the smartphone.
