Nintendo has released the latest firmware for Switch, and it’s a pretty big one. All users can access version 11.0.0.

One notable feature from today’s update is the ability to transfer screenshots and videos to smart devices or a PC through USB.

A new system update has just gone live for 3DS. Version 11.14.0-46 is out now for all users. Nintendo says of the latest firmware: “Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.”

Version 10.0.0 launched in April and was the last major firmware upgrade. It included new features like button remapping, an option to transfer software data between the system memory and an SD card, and more.

Every now and then, when Nintendo upgrades the Switch firmware, it comes with an update for controllers. That’s what happened with last night’s release of version 10.1.0.

To update your controllers, head on over to system settings. Go down to the “Controllers and Sensors” tab, and then simply select “Update Controllers”. The whole process should be quick and easy.

Nintendo unfortunately doesn’t make it clear what these updates actually do. That being said, you may want to carry it out just to ensure your controllers are in tip-top shape.
