Today we’ll tell you how to customize the status bar and control center on your Xiaomi device using MIUI 12. We are going to show you how you can customize the status bar and control center on your Xiaomi phone. One of the main benefits of MIUI is that we can customize to the maximum and individually multiple sections of the system, including the center of shortcuts and notifications.
For this tutorial, we are going to use the Xiaomi Themes app, which we recommend you to have updated. The method is valid for any Xiaomi, POCO, or Redmi, although if we want to have the control center we have to have a fairly updated mobile, or force the activation of the new control center.
MIUI 12: How to customize the status bar and control center on your Xiaomi?
With the new versions of MIUI came a new control center in the purest iPhone style. It is a replacement for the classic Android shortcut bar and is nicely integrated with the Themes app. For this tutorial, we are going to use the Themes app, so we recommend you change the region of your Xiaomi to unlock as many themes as possible.
To change the interface of the control center and status bar you have to follow the steps below:
- Open the Themes app.
- In the ‘my account section click on ‘customize theme’.
- Now, click on ‘status bar’.
- Choose the theme you want to apply.
Done. By performing this step-by-step method, only the changes to the status bar and control center will be applied, leaving the rest of the elements untouched. This is a great way to customize just this part of the system, without the need to apply the theme to the rest of the interface.
