During the launch of iOS 16, Apple demonstrated the design of the mobile OS interface. Some users immediately noticed the suspicious similarity of a component of Apple’s Brainchild with the MIUI firmware presented long ago – and did not miss the opportunity to “troll” the American brand.
Super wallpapers have been created on the lock screen due to the biggest criticism of the seller from users of the Chinese social network Weibo. According to them, Apple actually copied this feature from Xiaomi’s proprietary shell. Some commentators have sarcastically mentioned that it provides a better performance of dynamic wallpapers due to the higher image zoom ratio when unlocked in Chinese firmware.
A similar incident occurred last autumn, when the Chinese media drew attention to the design of Apple’s advertising poster, which virtually replicated the Xiaomi teaser two years ago. As of last time, Apple representatives have not officially commented on the user’s statement.
