Sony has dropped a PS5 system update designed to improve system performance – but it’s still unclear what the patch specifically changes. The 20.02-02.26.00 system update weighs in at 886MB and, like last week’s update, its details read simply: “This system software update improves system performance.”
If you want to download the update manually, head to: Settings > System > System Software > System Software Update and Settings > Update System Software.Sony traditionally doesn’t comment on the contents of its system updates, and hasn’t responded to requests for comment on the recent patches either.
Last week’s patch did appear to help solve the download queue bug that had affected PS5 players since launch. It may be that we now see new fixes for the other PS5 issues that have been reported in recent weeks, although nothing has been confirmed at time of writing.
