Problems with icons behaviour in MIUI

Users have expressed that after the latest MIUI update the icons on the notification bar keep hiding automatically. This has created a lot of problems for many users as they are missing out on important notifications due to the issue and phones having notch displays have higher chances of facing this issue.

Possible Solution – You can try to adjust the notification settings in the App info page of the app manually to bring the notifications and notification icons back. We are not completely sure that this trick will work for everyone or not, but it’s worth giving a try. Or else you can wait for a later update from Xiaomi about an official fix for this issue.

4G / APN settings messed up after MIUI 11 update

On Reddit, several users have posted that the mobile internet is not working properly after updating to MIUI 11. Users have also claimed that the APN settings were default set to another carrier and were not solved even after a reset or manual setting.

Possible Solution – Check out Google or the website of your mobile service provider and find their APN setting. Then manually insert the correct APN for your mobile network.

No option to allow you to change lock screen by a 3rd party

An issue has been raised by some users that the latest update still doesn’t give permission to change the wallpaper on their lock screen by using a 3rd party app. Users who use Nova Launcher and Muzei along with Bing wallpapers to update the lock screen wallpaper daily but it doesn’t seem to work on the latest MI OS version.

Possible Solution – According to some experts, the lock screen is said to be supporting ads from India and China. There may be no such provision of ads in the MIUI and what is seems like to be a default setting in the UI which cannot be altered.

Unavailability of Dynamic fonts feature

The special font type is known ad Dynamic fonts help developers/designers to add special style fonts to their web pages. The latest MIUI 11 update was supposed to bring this feature into the devices but hasn’t set sail yet.

Possible Solution – Rumours has it that dynamic fonts are to be set for Chinese letters only and will not work with European Languages but we ask you to wait for the Android 10 update which can bring this out.
