Is There Any Fix To Address The Issue?

At the moment, there’s yet to be a fix for the annoying MIUI 12 battery drain issue. However, according to a moderator, it seems the company is already aware of the issue and already working on a fix to address it. Furthermore, the Mod also mentioned that the problem exists because MIUI 12 is resource-heavy.

Here’s what the moderator said about the fix below:

“Apparently, it’s the same with all devices. MIUI 12 is really heavy on the battery. It’s a known issue and I hope they get optimized in coming builds.”

If what the moderator is anything to go by, it means we’ll have to wait for the company to roll out a fix. Since the release date of the update isn’t sure, we’ll continue to keep an eye on the company for you. As soon as we find anything worth sharing, we’ll let you know about it here.
