The latest Nintendo Switch update is out now, but don’t expect a lot of changes or much in the way of anything significant. Version 12.0.3 is out now and it’s another stability patch.
The one-line patch notes state: “General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.”
Your Switch should update automatically the next time it’s connected to the internet. You can check to verify you’re running 12.0.3 to be sure you’re on the latest firmware. Alternatively, you can manually start the update, in case that applies to you.
In addition to the stability improvements, the patch introduces a few other “minor” updates, according to dataminer OatmealDome.
[Nintendo Switch System Update]
12.0.3 is out. Nintendo updated:
– package2 (contains OS kernel and key services)
– SSL (helps w/ creating secure connections to a server – seems TLSv1.3 support was dropped?)
– bad words list
Looks to be minor things, I’m going back to sleep

In other news, people are waiting for Nintendo to announced the rumored Switch Pro model, but that still has not happened. Nintendo is coming to E3 2021 with its own showcase on June 15, but the company has said this presentation will be focused on games, not hardware.
