Many users have reported issues with their Xbox Series X and S controller disconnecting from the console, however, this hasn’t been resolved with the new update. Instead, Microsoft has issued a workaround in the meanwhile.

General stability and performance improvements.
We’re aware of an issue in which some Xbox Series X|S controllers are losing connection with the console. If you see this behavior, try reconnecting the controller to the console wirelessly or with a USB cable, or if possible, connecting another controller and then submitting feedback. Then reboot the console and try reconnecting the controller.
There’s an issue in which the audio mixer may not be adjustable.
My games & apps
Some games might appear with an incorrect “Trial” tag in My games & apps.
The incorrect profile color may appear when turning on the console.
This should cover the major changes that are a part of this update. If you are experiencing issues with the controller getting disconnected, try to attempt the workaround given by Microsoft. That should hopefully resolve it.
Xbox One and Series S/X usually use the same system software so the update applies to both the old and new generation consoles. To verify you have the latest version installed, check the system information from the settings menu.
