Sony has released a brand new PS4 firmware update 7.50 today. This was in an early beta testing phase for a while and has been made public today.
The new PS4 firmware update is roughly 471 MB. It should be available to download now starting from today. The official support page still has the old version listed so it appears Sony is a little behind the curve when it comes to updating the website.
PS4 Firmware Update 7.50 Changelog
Main features in version 7.50 update
Sony had released a beta firmware update for the PS4 early in March. They were testing out 7.50 firmware with a beta test which appears to have made an important change for HDMI devices. The new firmware has implemented a new HDMI standard which should help with the newer technology.
Most of these updates appear to aim at improving the system stability or implementing minor new features like the aforementioned HDCP update that was also available in the beta test of this new firmware. There are usually under-the-hood changes as well but it is hard to determine them since Sony hasn’t detailed them so far.
