If you are not receiving the HyperOS update on your Xiaomi phone even after days, a lock on your smartphone may be open. Xiaomi has taken such a step to prevent the HyperOS operating system from giving errors with software interventions.

New Xiaomi Policy

According to Xiaomi’s new policy, Xiaomi, POCO and Redmi smartphones with unlocked bootloader will not be able to switch from MIUI to HyperOS via OTA. If HyperOS is installed, they will not be able to receive HyperOS updates via OTA. So if your bootloader is unlocked, you may still not get the HyperOS update.

But remember, if your bootloader is unlocked and you don’t know why it is unlocked, don’t turn it off immediately. On some repaired smartphones or smartphones with a modified operating system, if you turn off the bootloader lock, your smartphone may never turn on again.
