Dual apps

Of course, one of the star features that has accompanied MIUI for several years now is the possibility of using duplicate applications . Many other layers of customization have already added these types of functions to their software, but Xiaomi's was one of the first to be able to enjoy it.

Thanks to this, devices such as the Xiaomi Mi 11 will be able to expand their RAM memory by up to 3 GB, reaching a total of 11 GB , a more than reasonable amount to be able to manage all the tasks that we carry out in our day-to-day with the computer.
