Notification badges & icons


Dec 19, 2023
Hello everyone, first post here. Can anyone help and answer a couple of questions I have about my new Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus with China rom, MIUI on Android 13 - is it normal for notification badges to disappear once I've swiped away the floating notifications? This is very annoying and I've never experienced it on any Android device - I'd love it if the badges with the numbers stayed on, say, WhatsApp until I've opened the messages themselves.

Also, is there a way to change the icons in the status bar from the mini colorful app icons to classic Android monochrome ones?

I've dug around for 2 days, haven't been able to find any how-to. Help appreciated!
