Switch and Switch Lite - Stream

Another day has come by, and Nintendo has dropped upon yes yet another system update for the Nintendo Switch. I’m not quite sure if it’s just me, but these seem to be even more frequent this year than in the years prior. But, I digress. You came to see what new Switch goodies Nintendo has left for us in the package, correct? Well, it’s quite something. Something that we all have come to expect. Take a guess, perhaps?

It’s a Switch stability update!

Nintendo Switch Ver. 10.1.0 (Released July 13, 2020)

General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.

Of course it is. What more were you hoping for? This is Nintendo we’re talking about; just like the 3DS, it wants to make the Switch the most stabilized console platform in history. At the rate it’s going, the Switch might have 20 firmware versions worth of updates with 80% of those focusing just on “stability”. But, word on the street is that these many “stability updates” are really just security patches that cover whatever new holes and exploits Nintendo has managed to come across, though Nintendo apparently doesn’t like specifying that. Regardless, if it hasn’t auto-downloaded it, your Switch will prompt you to install it before you use any software. So, go ahead and let it do its thing and be on your way.

Perhaps in 2035 we’ll finally get around to having truly new features like folders, themes, and a browser. Keep fighting the good fight, Switch fans. Nintendo has to cave eventually to our requests, right?! … Right?
