How to Change the Theme on Redmi Smartphones

    You are free to browse the theme store without a Mi account, but you’ll need one if you wish to download themes. Visit to create your account, or opt for a quick signup through your Facebook account.

    Alternatively, you can register via your phone settings (settings > Mi account). Either way, ensure you have a Mi account if you want to make use of themes.
  • Find Your Desired Theme
    Once your Mi account is up and running, you can search for and download MIUI themes. Launch the themes app to enter the store. The theme home screen is neatly organized, with a scrolling list of categories at the top.

    You’ll also find permanent categories dedicated to new arrivals, the most popular themes, and editor’s picks. Scroll through the categories and select your desired theme.

  • Download the Theme
    Spotted a theme you fancy? Tap on it, and you’ll notice a download button located at the bottom of the screen. Simply tap the button and wait for the theme to download. Once the download is complete, the ‘Apply’ button should pop up replacing the download button. Tap on ‘Apply,’ and the theme will be applied to your Redmi phone.

    If you’ve downloaded several themes and want to see them all in one place, visit the themes app and tap the smiling icon (the third option, in the bottom-right corner). Here, you should get into the themes section and the next menu will display all the downloaded themes. To apply any of your previously downloaded (or preinstalled) themes, just tap on the theme of your choice and select ‘apply.’ In a similar manner, the process of deleting a theme is as follows.
