The EMUI 9.1 introduced many innovations, some of which are hidden "under the hood". Among these discrete changes for regular users, it is worth highlighting the introduction of Arc Compiler technology, which increases the speed of the operating system (according to official data, this technology launches Huawei 44% faster programs and 60% third party applications) The emergence of a new file system called EROFS increases the speed of reading and initializing files as well as optimizes working with the operating system – the firmware takes up less space). In addition to the above, in EMUI 9.1, developers have redesigned the shell interface: it has become more unified and minimalist.
