Nintendo Switch is one of the best gaming consoles available in the market, however, since the beginning of its launch, some users have raised concerns about connectivity issues with its Joy-Con controllers, majorly affecting the left of the unit. Nintendo had then tried to resolve the issue by rolling out updates. Since the issue is associated with the antenna assembly inside the controller, the software updates could not resolve the issue completely. Now, it seems like Nintendo is all set correct its mistakes and is going to make the necessary hardware changes in order to fix the Joy-Con's connectivity issue.
As per some sources from the web, Nintendo has filed an application with the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) giving the details regarding the hardware change that is supposed to resolve the connectivity issue, due to which the Joy-Con loses connection with its console.
The report further suggests that in one of the documents which is titled 'Request for class II permissive Change', Nintendo has further mentioned that they have changed the antenna pattern and peripheral circuit of the original Joy- Con model. Also, one other document which is named 'Radio Test Report' quotes that the device is under testing which is a production prototype and further mentions that the sample used in the test is 'equivalent to mass-produced items'.
It seems like Nintendo has only made some changes in the antenna and circuit hardware based on the standard Joy-Con controller in order to resolve the issue. Further, if the changes made get desired output, then the upgraded model will be nothing but an original model with tweaked antenna and some improvements under the hood. It is still not clear that the when Nintendo intends on launching the updated and improved Joy-Con.
Nintendo also needs to fix another issue in the Nintendo Switch which leaves a user vulnerable to a complete jailbreak. The vulnerability further allows the hackers to execute an arbitrary code to run custom ROMs on the Nintendo Switch and further allowing them to install emulators and back-up their games among the other things.
