The update also brings support for aptX codec, a Qualcomm-designed adaptive codec that promises to improve Bluetooth audio transmission and deliver high definition audio wirelessly. As spotted by MySmartPrice, the update also brings a number of other fixes and changes to the smartphone.

The update to MIUI 9.6.4 fixes the issue where Redmi Note 5 Pro users complained about battery draining faster on Wi-Fi. The issue was observed after the release of previous MIUI 9 update and it is being fixed now. The update also fixes the lag in the navigation bar. The new version of MIUI 9 also removes the Mi Roaming app as Xiaomi tries to limit issues caused by the application.

The update does address some of the issues already being reported by Redmi Note 5 Pro users. However, Xiaomi is yet to issue a fix for the issue with the zoom feature within the camera app. The update also does not add any new features from the global version of MIUI 10. If you have a Redmi Note 5 Pro then you can manually check for the update by heading to Settings > About Phone > System Update > Check for Updates.
