Nintendo has released the system software 11.0.0 for Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite. It adds many new features, including a way to share screenshots and video captures more easily by transferring to a smartphone or tablet.
Also, a new “copy to a computer via USB connection” function has been added to the settings, as well as more other functions.
Here are the main changes and how to install them on Nintendo Switch.
How to install the new Nintendo Switch?
Normally, the next time your Nintendo Switch connects to a stable Internet connection via Wi-Fi, it will automatically download the latest system software.
However, if you do not have version 11.0.0, you can manually initiate the update.
We strongly recommend that you make sure that the battery life is sufficient before starting the process.
- Go to “System Settings” on the main screen.
- Scroll down on the left-hand menu bar to “System”. Tap on “System Update” on the right-hand side.
- Tap on “Update” on the next screen.
- The update will download, install, and restart your Switch. All done.
