Nintendo released a firmware update for the Nintendo Switch today.
In addition to updating the Dock, allowing the Internet to remain active when in sleep mode and calibrating analogues, version 13.0.0 of the system was introduced with the addition of support for bluetooth audio devices.
Check out the details of this update below:
| Data: September 14, 2021
Added Bluetooth® audio support.

Added “Update Dock” under Console in Console Setup option on Nintendo Switch systems and Nintendo Switch-OLED model, allowing software updates for Nintendo Switch docks with LAN port.

- For more information. How to Update Dock Firmware.
Added “Keep internet connection in sleep mode” to Sleep mode in Console Configuration option.
- When this setting is enabled, systems with wireless internet connection will maintain internet connection even in sleep mode. This allows software and additional content to be downloaded to the system while the system is in sleep mode.
- This setting is enabled by default.
- When this setting is disabled, the system connects to the internet only periodically, which reduces energy consumption.
Important: Systems that have not been updated to 13.0.0 or later behave as if this setting is enabled.
Changed the way to launch “Calibrate Analog Buttons” in console settings.
- In Console Configuration, navigate to: Controls and Sensors, Choose Calibrate Analog Buttons and then fully tilt the analog in both directions and hold it tilted for a few seconds to start the calibration.
Users can now see if their wireless internet connection is using the 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequency band under “Connection Status” after selecting Internet in the Console Setup option.
