Switch update 16.0.1

Nintendo has just come out with the latest firmware update for Switch, with version 16.0.1 having been made available.

Like we’ve seen with the past few updates, this one is again about stability. Some of the more recent firmware upgrades have all been about that in one form or another.

Nintendo’s patch notes for the Switch version 16.0.1 update are as follows:

Switch update 16.0.0

The latest firmware update has just gone out for Switch, and all users can now access version 16.0.0.

With a big number change like that, you’d probably expect some additions or changes. However, this one appears to be on the lighter side. System stability improvements are included per usual, but there’s also a modification regarding user nicknames.

The official patch notes for the Switch version 16.0.0 update are as follows:

Switch update 15.0.1

Nintendo has just released a new 15.0.1 firmware update for all Switch systems. This follows version 15.0.0, which dropped earlier in the month.

Today’s update primarily targets two specific issues, including Error Code: 2181-1000 and a problem in which screenshots couldn’t be taken in certain scenes.

Switch controller update 15.0.0

Switch received its new 15.0.0 firmware update last night, and tying in with that, there’s a controller-specific update as well. Seemingly this is just for the Pro Controller – there does not appear to be anything new with the Joy-Con.

When Nintendo provides a controller update, it typically doesn’t say what it includes. However, those that have dug into version 15.0.0 have found that the Pro Controller Bluetooth firmware was updated.

Switch update 15.0.0

Nintendo is now offering the latest firmware update for Switch, version 15.0.0.

Despite being a main number change, this one seems relatively insignificant in nature. At the same time, there’s more here than simple stability improvements – though of course that’s also included.

3DS update 11.16.0-49

Another update has just gone live for 3DS systems, with Nintendo starting distribution of version 11.16.0-49 – and we have the official patch notes.

Nintendo says the following: “Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.”

3DS update 11.16.0-48

Nintendo has just released a new firmware update for all 3DS systems, with owners now having access to version 11.16.0-48. Unsurprisingly, there’s not a whole lot here.

Nintendo’s official patch notes state: “Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.”

Switch update 14.1.2

The latest Switch system update has just arrived, as Nintendo has just issued version 14.1.2. All Switch users can download it now.

Keeping in line with most firmware changes, today’s patch notes are on the milder side. Nintendo mentions: “General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.”

switch update 14.1.1

It’s time to update your Switch once again, as Nintendo has just started distribution of firmware version 14.1.1

As this is a minor update, the patch notes are pretty small. Nintendo only states: “General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.” Per usual, the Big N didn’t go into specifics.

Switch update 14.1.0

Nintendo has just released a new firmware update for Switch, version 14.1.0.

A number of other upgrades tend to focus on stability. In this case, it’s actually a bit different. Users will now find new “Platinum Points Notification Settings” in which they can be notified about unclaimed points as part of the My Nintendo rewards program.

The official patch notes for Switch firmware update version 14.1.0 are as follows:
