Hello I just updated my MI5s 8.x.x.x to latest 9.5.2, before updating my phone I need ot unlock it just to flash the latest  ROM,I am just curious, but upon reading that unlocking the phone has disadvantages, why do I need to unlock the phone just for the update. Does the update has the things needed to remove those disadvantages? Thanks in advance. :D

OTA updates does not require unlocking the boot loader of your phone unless you flashed the rom via other methods.
