Nintendo Switch Parental Controls App Hints at Console Firmware Update

Nintendo Switch Parental Controls App Hints at Console Firmware Update

While that leak was illegitimate, it does appear like the real deal actually is on the horizon. Since the Switch is now running software version 4.1.0., this would imply that a firmware update is inbound for the Nintendo's latest platform. In addition, the Parental Controls PIN page has been changed to move cursor control to the control stick, and parents using the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls mobile app will now find a new option to whitelist specific games for general play. The patch notes go over a few new features/improvements that have been made to the app. Nintendo has also teased that it is possible to get the recording time up to 15 minutes so this can also be implemented with a future firmware update.

Well, for people hoping System Firmware 5.0.0 is coming sooner than later, whatever it might contain, we might have some good news for you.




Patch notes for the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app's most recent update on iOS reference Nintendo Switch system version 5.0.0, not only potentially revealing the upcoming firmware update, but hinting that it may arrive sooner rather than later.

Many Nintendo Switch owners have been speculating what the newest System Firmware 5.0.0 could bring to the console.
