The Nintendo Switch firmware has been updated to version 13.0.0


It has been a couple of months since the Nintendo Switch last received a firmware update, and 5 months since the last time a major firmware update was released for the console. Most of the updates during the summer have been small ones, where bug fixes and stability improvements have been the focus.

That pattern has changed tonight. Nintendo has released a new Nintendo Switch firmware update. Once you update, the console should be at version 13.0.0. This is a big update, with the main things being the addition of Bluetooth audio support and a couple of options related to the Switch’s internet connection that can be toggled. The patch notes are down below.

Bluetooth® audio support was added.

“Update Dock” was added under System in System Settings for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch – OLED Model systems, allowing for software updates to Nintendo Switch docks with a LAN port.

“Maintain Internet Connection in Sleep Mode” was added under Sleep Mode in System Settings.

Note: Systems that are not updated to version 13.0.0 or later behave as if this setting is enabled.

The method to initiate “Calibrate Control Sticks” in System Settings was changed.

Users can now view whether their wireless internet connection is using the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency band under “Connection Status” after selecting Internet in System Settings.
