Although MIUI is built on the Android platform, the default user interface of its previous iteration closely resembles iOS due to the absence of the application tray with a grid of icons organized into the home panels. Other iOS similarities include application icons in the same shape, dialer and in-call interface, organization of the Settings app, and visual appearance of toggles in the UI.
