And after we use the mobile phone, we will also install a lot of applications. There may be many programs that we will not use often, such as 12306, personal income tax, etc., which may only be used once or twice a year, but they cannot be uninstalled directly.

For these infrequently used applications, MIUI 14 introduces a low-frequency application compression function to reduce the storage space occupied by these applications.
