EMUI 13 Beta Changelog

Brand new interactions

[Handy service widgets]

Swiping up on an app icon with the bottom widget bar generates a service widget, which can be resized, dragged to a new location, or added to your custom home screen.

  • Widget stacks: Drag widgets of the same size on top of each other to create a stack. Swipe up or down to cycle between widgets. Swipe down further to expand the stack and swipe left on a widget to remove it. Hold and drag a widget to adjust its position in the stack, or drag it to the home screen.
  • Widget combos: Drag widgets of different sizes and app shortcuts together to group them into a combo. You can adjust the combo size.

[Resizable smart folders]

  • Touch and hold down on a folder to adjust its size based on the number of apps within it, so that it can fit into any available home screen space.
  • An all-scenario smart life experience

[Super Device]

  • Supports connecting to and interacting with more device types via Super Device, without even having to be logged in to the same HUAWEI ID.


  • Adds the SuperHub feature, which allows you to share multiple forms of content between apps and devices at a single time, by dragging text, images, and files to SuperHub.

Privacy and security

[Privacy center]

  • Allows you to keep track of which permissions are being used by which apps from the new privacy dashboard, and provides useful tips for protecting your privacy.

[Security center]

  • Easily check the security status of this device and other devices logged in to the same HUAWEI ID, and get suggestions on how to improve your device security.
