A modest sized update: Tweaks parental controls, makes adding friends easier, and gifts players with new user icons.

Remember a short while ago when there was an apparent leak going around showing off what was supposed to be the Nintendo Switch OS update 5.0?

The update, which was outed earlier today, also adds 24 new ARMS and Kirby-themed user icons, as well as the ability to filter news to content from specific channels or just unread news.

To keep the Parental Controls PIN private, the default method for PIN entry has been changed to entering using the Control Stick and buttons instead of the on-screen number pad.

If your Nintendo Switch is connected to the internet, your console will download the update automatically.

The app has a new whitelist feature that lets you choose to exclude games from the Parental Controls restrictions, the ability to lock the app, and changes to the bedtime alarm.

If the speculations are right then Nintendo might be preparing to roll out Nintendo Switch firmware Update 5.0.0 in near future. In addition, captured videos in the Album will be restricted by Parental Controls depending on the Restricted Software setting and Software Rating Organization.

Once the download is complete, you'll be asked if you'd like to install the update.
