I use a RedMi 3S phone, with MIUI 18.104.22.168 (Malmiek; based on Android 6.0.1). I don't use a Google account on my phone so I can't (and don't want to) use the Google Play Store. I use APKPure instead.
Recently I've been getting messages from some apps - Google apps mostly - saying that they won't work unless I upgrade Google Play Services. Yet - APKPure suggests my version is up-to-date. There are also no MIUI system updates available from my phone (checked using the preferences interface).
My current Google Play Services version is 11.5.09 (446-164803921).
- Should I be getting this message?
- Should I upgrade Google Play Services? If so, to what version exactly, and won't it cause trouble with MIUI?
