How to turn off Animations in MIUI 12?

MIUI 12 introduced a lot of animations within apps across the system UI. For example, navigating to the battery settings will show an animation where a battery is filled till the current level. There are also a lot of animations while switching between apps, minimising app, launching app, going back in Settings, etc...

While these animations do look nice, they can make a low end mobile phone slower. You can set a system preference to remove animations which will in turn most of these animations. Some UI elements like the About page will still show some animations. Not all the System elements respect this setting, but it works across most apps.

To turn off these animations,
  • Go to Settings -> Additional Settings -> Accessibility
  • Select Vision from the top header.
  • Under Display section, Turn on Remove animations.
