If you’re a Switch owner looking for new features and functionality, the console’s new 12.0.0 firmware may have come as a disappointment. The official notice mentioned that Nintendo merely fixed an issue with save data backups. However, after coming through the contents of the update, dataminers have come across an interesting discovery.

As relayed by Twitter user OatmealDome, version 12.0.0 apparently allows for the dock’s internal firmware to be updated. It’s a curious addition as there’s not much to the device – it only has USB chips, a MyDP to HDMI converter, and flash memory to store its firmware. It doesn’t seem as though Nintendo has ever issued an update for the dock, and there may not be much of a purpose in doing so given its limited technology.
