Update MIUI apps manually

As usual, you can always find APK files online through various websites or channels and update your MIUI system apps that way. It is not the most convenient method as it leaves a mess in your internal storage with the leftover APK files and you will need to routinely clean it in order to free your space. However, if you wish to update your MIUI system apps this way, you can check out MIUI System Updates Telegram channel where any new update is pushed.


Please do keep in mind that these apps may not install on your device, or may cause instability, due to not being supported on your ROM. You could try disabling signature verification, but this requires your device to be rooted.
