Switch controller update available

Posted on October 18, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

You probably know about the ability to update Switch’s firmware. But did you know that you know that the console has an option to update controllers as well?

First, visit system settings. Then head on over to the “Controllers and Sensors” tab. Scroll down to “Update Controllers”, and both Joy-Con will be updated in a matter of seconds.

What’s behind the update for the controllers? Well, that’s a bit of a mystery. Nintendo doesn’t seem to have any information on that currently, but we’ll let you know if we hear anything.

      I wanted to make a joke about that, but my supervisor just called me out to say i repeated some words on the translation I handed over.

      I’ll let you do the honors.

    Tried to update my controllers before updating the system and it said they were up to date. After updating the system, then I could update the controllers.

    I think the update could have to do with the joy cons other features. I believe they posses a few things such as ar functions I think? I could be wrong but I think the joy cons do posses more then we think.

    Considering it forced me to do this update before playing 1-2 Switch’s Eating Contest, I would guess that this update concerns the IR sensor.
