Switch Parental Controls update notes mention unreleased Switch firmware version

Infamous Nintendo Switch Firmware

Nintendo recently rolled out an update to the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app on iOS/Android.

While that's great for discerning parents out there, what is of much greater intrigue is that the patch notes state that some features require Switch system update 5.0.0 or later, suggesting that said update is coming rather soon.

This is according to Twitter user Wario64 who noted that Nintendo Switch Firmware update 5.0.0 was mentioned following the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app update.

A new whitelist feature has been added.

You can now choose to lock this app.

The time range for the bedtime alarm has been extended to between 16:00 and 23:45.

Settings made using this app will now be synced to the Nintendo Switch console even when it is in sleep mode.

While the patch notes don't confirm a release date for the system update, I can't imagine Nintendo releasing a parental controls update that advertises new features too long before those features are functional. Others, however, have set their sights on updates that they truly do believe are possible: such as backup saves, folder organization and more customization options to make the Switch truly feel as though it belongs to you.
