New Switch 3.0.0 update fixes HDMI switching and adds new features

Since the Nintendo Switch launched just a few months ago, the majority of the system’s updates have offered simple Quality of Life improvements like stability. Today, however, Nintendo delivered an update that doesn’t offer many groundbreaking changes, but expands on the system’s feature set and fixes a pesky problem.

First up, if you’ve been having trouble with your Switch turning on your TV, despite the console being off, this should fix things.

With this update, you’ll also be able to toggle notifications for friends coming online. If you’re particularly weary to controller latency, you’ll be happy to know that you can now use the Pro Controller in wired mode. This is perfect since Pokken Tournament Deluxe is just around the corner. Here’s the rest of this update’s patch notes:
