The latest Switch update has just gone live. As of now, all system users can download firmware version 5.0.2.

Today’s update makes general system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience. Nintendo specifically calls out the following:

– Resolved an issue that caused motion controls to respond incorrectly when playing games that use the feature
– Resolved an issue that caused user icons for recommended friends to not display correctly

This is slightly more notable than the previous Switch update that launched in late March. Nintendo had also made improvements to system stability with version 5.0.1, but didn’t mention any specifics unlike today.
