As per the announcement made by Nintendo, the company is also considering preparing the Switch system for any upcoming hardware updates. There will be a revision made to its network, as noted by the self-described hacking enthusiast @SciresM on Twitter. “If you own a Switch, the console usually automatically downloads updates while it’s connected online, but you can also manually start the update if you wish,” notes The Verge.
