Xiaomi Mi 11 received the MIUI 13 22.2.7 development board internal test update. Some users found a function called “CarWith” in the “connect and share” settings, which seems to be a car-machine interconnection system created by Xiaomi.

The Xiaomi car-building project started in March last year. It is expected that the first model will be mass-produced and launched in the first half of 2024. Then it will be the first to carry Xiaomi’s CarWith car-machine interconnection function. How does CarWith’s performance compare with Apple’s CarPlay? It remains to be further verified.
