Nintendo Switch Firmware Update 13.2.0 Drops With Stability Improvements
Nintendo Switch has received a new firmware update today and the changelog simply mentions that it is for stability improvements.
These small firmware updates from Nintendo that are for stability improvements are usually related to some under-the-hood changes that they don’t want to disclose.
Here is what the official Nintendo support website has listed for the changes implemented in this firmware update.
Nintendo Switch Firmware Update 13.2.0 Patch Notes
Ver. 13.2.0 (Distributed November 30, 2021)
- General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.
But as mentioned before, there are some other changes that might be hidden from the general users but dataminers and those who dive deeper into the update files have found them.
According to OatmealDome, there were changes to the way the Switch communicates with the Nintendo servers, along with a change to how notifications are displayed on the console.
The “nim” component (responsible for communicating with N servers among other things) and the overlay applet (shows notifications in top left) were updated. Probably just bug fixes.
So there isn’t really much to add for this update. If you haven’t received it yet, you will get a prompt to update the next time you connect your Switch to the internet to download or update a game.
