My Nintendo Switch arrived with the stock internal firmware Nintendo shipped with the consoles when they launched a few months ago. As I started getting used to the new Joy Con Controllers I noticed some occasional connectivity issues when detaching them from the tablet screen and some accuracy issues with one of the thumb sticks. However, all those problems went away after I performed a controller update.

To update your Joy Con Controllers you’ll first need to update your Nintendo Switch to its most recent system software. Then you’ll need to connect both of your Joy Con Controllers to the Switch while it is in tablet mode. Finally, watch the video below to see how to find the Controller Update feature in the Switch’s settings menu.

Please post a comment below if you noticed any issues with your Joy Cons that this procedure may have fixed.
