Xiaomi has been called the ‘Apple of China’ a lot of times lately and now they have taken this tag too seriously.

Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi has announced a significant upgrade to its MIUI Android Operating Sytem. MIUI 6 will be seen in new Xiaomi phones very soon, and this ‘new’ Xiaomi says hello to the iOS 7 many times. You may even begin to consider it as an iOS tweak rather than a kid from Android’s block.

It copies icons, calendar, camera app, compass, even the calculator app and a lot more.

Xiaomi has done it at a small level in the past and now it has surpassed itself in the new upgrade.

Xiaomi has been very successful recently and has left Samsung behind in China to become the market leader. This update is surely bringing the company under the lens of criticism but Xiaomi doesn’t look perplexed and is continuously expanding its markets in countries other than china.

    Well, it all comes from a case in 2006 when they were sued by some random company and lost $100 million. They decided then and there to patent everything they made (almost literally) so that they could have their own designs to keep everything from other companies. They're just utilizing the system that is in place to its fullest. Of course you don't like all the patent lawsuits they get into, but I'm willing to be that neither do they. Apple's fervent protection of its own intellectual property, combined with all the patent trolling as of late, it has really brought light to the issues involved with the patent system as a whole. Next up: Apple innovates the patent system.
