Companies occasionally ship out updates that bring a few bugs to their smartphones, but Xiaomi’s made a surprisingly big blunder this time around. Their latest update for the Mi A3 has straight up disabled the second sim card slot.
Over on the Mi community forums, users of the Xiaomi Mi A3 are being directly told to not install the brand new over-the-air V188.8.131.52.QFQMXTC update that is being rolled out for global variant of the device.

Unfortunately, this warning seems to have come a little too late for most users. Many people are now reporting on social media sites and forums that the update has broken their secondary sim slots, which is surely not a very pleasant surprise for most.
For now, all the company can really do is tell people not to install the update while they work on a new update for the device. We’re hoping they push out a fix for this soon, lest their reputation with updates gets tainted further.
