Earlier this week, Nintendo released a brand new system update for the Switch, Switch Lite and Switch OLED. Nintendo has jumped way ahead from version 14.1.2 all the way up to 15.0.0. Most recent updates for the Switch have been somewhat small, with minor improvements and bug fixes.

Version 15.0.0 isn’t a huge major update like the release number would have you believe, it is instead more of a bug fixes update, with quite a few in the list. For example, Nintendo have reworked some of the core OS files.

Release Notes

– The location of Bluetooth Audio menu within System Settings has moved.
– Screenshots can be taken using the Capture Button while in the Nintendo Switch Online application found on the Nintendo Switch HOME Menu. (Note: Video capture is not supported)
