As you know, the MIUI 12 version includes privacy-focused improvements along with minimalist UI, improved dark mode, system-wide animations, and Super Wallpapers. The new version also brings the “While using the app” and “Notify” options in the app permissions section. Beyond the strict control on location, MIUI 12 pushes it to the camera, contacts, call history, calendar, and storage permissions. To clarify, users can use the “While using the app” option for all these permissions, unlike stock Android. For some context, Android only provides such strict control to location access.
