How to Remove Ads on Xiaomi Phones with MIUI without Root

Xiaomi phones are reasonably priced for a reason, advertising.

Xiaomi’s decision to incorporate ads into its user interface came in 2018.

Considering how Xiaomi holds 12.4% of the global smartphone market share, and most of its devices run MIUI, surely this affects a lot of users

For that, we will help you to remove ads from Xiaomi devices.

Why does Xiaomi put ads on MIUI?

Just like Google and Amazon, Xiaomi doesn’t think of itself as a hardware manufacturer, but an internet company that happens to make hardware.

The company has promised to forever cap hardware profit margins at 5%.

This means Xiaomi needs to make money in a different way.

One of them is offering add-ons, extra services, and earning revenue through advertising.

So, there is no Xiaomi phone option without ads, even if you want to pay more for it.

Luckily there are things you can do to minimize the presence of ads (not 100% eliminate them).
