Dear fellow MIUI fans!

MIUI ROM had came long way, since its 'birth' 7 years ago, MIUI 8 ROM will be launched last year, 10-May-2016, together with Mi MAX. It was much rumoured that the new MIUI 9 ROM will be released together with the new Mi flagship, Mi 6. But to our surprise, it wasnt. However, it shouldnt be too long before it will be released. Nonetheless, how well do you know about MIUI ROM? And how the MIUI ROM's icons had evolved? Now, let me bring you back in time, a journey in the MIUI ROM evolution!

MIUI V1

MIUI V1 is launched back in 16-Aug-2010, it was the fruit of labour of 100 supporters, together they had a common dream to customise Google's Android Mobile Operating System. Back then , it was customized for Google Nexus One. MIUI V1 was simple, pain and easy to use. It features more functionalities as compare to the Pure AOSP ROM, back then!


The first edition of MIUI icon now appears slightly astringent, rounded rectangle shape is not currently used conventional, but somewhere between one form of circles and squares. Draw icon, introduced Muji (MUJI) concept, and strive life, naturalization. Of course, some small green icon appears on the robot, and also shows the time of the native Android MIUI tribute.


MIUI V2

In pursit for perfectism, MIUI V2 was further improvisionised and undergo more customization, much more new functions were added to MIUI V2. And by this time, MIUI V2 is made available for much more smartphones!


MIUI icons with constantly updated system has undergone some changes. Icons rounded rectangle frame into the current has been used; and in the icon draws the attention to detail, using a shadow has been re-revised, so that the icon looks more delicate.


MIUI V3

On 20-April-2012, MIUI V3 ROM was borne! This is marked a major milestone for MIUI ROM, when themes is firstly introduced and it give users the flexibility to customise how they want their MIUI ROM to look like! And this functions set a standard in future MIUI ROM! At this time, it is based on Google's Android Mobile Operating System 2.3, named "Gingerbread".


It can be that this is an important milestone on the MIUI development process. In this big release, the icon was re-drawing, most of them designed to meet the then mainstream style - quasi-physical. Moreover, simple and clean, elegant design style, gradually gave birth to DNA MIUI design


MIUI V4

Later about a year, on 22-February-2013, MIUI V4 ROM was borned! Together with the Google's Android Mobile Operating System evolved (into 4.0 nicknamed "Ice-cream Sandwich" or "ICS") and introduction of a series of Google-related APPs. Similiarly in the MIUI V4 ROM ,a series of Mi APPS APPs was also developed and included, eg. APP Store, Music, Video. There is also new functions added into MIUI V4  ROM, (e.g. Tencent's Anti-Virus), which is not found in standard Google's pure AOSP ROM.


When MIUI V4's icon appears, you will find it looked better, more concise, and more modern the. Phone, contacts, browser, text messaging, these four resident application icon in the Dock light becomes softer, more concise content, intuitive, clear; and like folders, such systems music player, the camera comes with application icon, in the continuation of the DNA on the basis of MIUI design, more modern constitution sense, no longer so bloated, becomes cool altogether.


MIUI V5

A year later, in 5-Dec-2014, a brand new MIUI V5 ROM was released. It undergo-ed a major GUI redesign and revamp, from addition of notification at a swipe-down shade menu to system animations and desktop beautification, but yet retain the similiar users' experience and operations! However, at this point of time, due to the Mainland China government policies, all access to Google services are totally blocked, and all smartdevices are not allowed to be installed with any Google's APPs! Hence, a whole new environment of MIUI ROM were incorporated into MIUI V5 ROM, and all Google's APP and service were totally removed.


The consistent style icons give people a pleasing viewing experience. The system comes with a carefully drawn the application icon, supplemented by a different color, icon originally intended to ensure the materialization of the basis of further abstraction to it, so that more simple-looking icons. In addition, the next version V5 launched the "perfect icon" program, the first official to redraw the more than 200 third-party applications icon, the purpose is to make MIUI V5 icon vision, achieve unprecedented unity

MIUI 6

On the fifth birthday of MIUI ROM,6-Aug-2015, a all-new MIUI 6 was released. It was a new milestone for MIUI ROM, the GUI was re-designed, icons get a brand new refresh looks, more and new apps were included, and many new functions were added! For the first time, there were unofficially slogan for MIUI ROM, e.g. Visually Stunning, Stunningly Simple.!


In MIUI 6, it looked even better. Simple lines, colorful color, you can see here like theme shops, map a continuation of the traditional kind is somewhat innovative icon designs; you can also find a clock, compass, a class of completely subvert the traditional recorder. MIUI icons 6, can fit the spirit "minimalist aesthetics". Icon shoot flat, minimalist, and instead a higher degree of recognition. As soon as you see this icon, you will know what your open applications.

Although GUI and icons largely remind unchanged, but the underlying process undergo optimization, RAM management, and better battery life operation.
