What does the new update for PlayStation 5 do?.
Thanks to the official update notes, we know that Sony leveraged version 23.01-07.40.00 of its console to further improve performance and stability, but also made adjustments to several console features.
It made optimizations to messages and to the usability of some unspecified screens. These changes aim to optimize system navigation and make the gaming experience even more intuitive and satisfying for users.
Unfortunately, Sony did not elaborate further on the new features, so it does not specify what kind of optimizations it made in those sections. Otherwise, update 23.01-07.40.00 does not include any further console tweaks.
However, to download and install it you will need 1 GB of space. The last update, 23.01-07.20.00, did much the same, but was accompanied by an update for the DualSense Edge.
The last major update for PlayStation 5 was 23.01-07.00.00, which debuted support for 1440p video output and other new features for the console's social section.
