Nintendo has been busy updating its Switch and the latest one adds a few handy features. One is letting parents operate PIN entry using the joystick and button instead of using an on-screen keyboard and then some titles can be whitelisted for play beyond of the console’s restricted software settings. It is now also easier to add Twitter and Facebook friends who have Nintendo Accounts linked to them. The console also gets 24 new Arms and Kirby user icons. And it will start downloading games you’ve purchased on your PC or phone even if the system is asleep. Version 5.0.0 will also let the system notify you when pre-ordered games have been unlocked and it fixes an issue with the Switch hiding some older play activity data.
