Sony has pushed a firmware patch to the PS5 which updates the DualSense controller and improves system performance.
The full patch notes for Version 20.02-02.30.00 can be read on the PlayStation website. As well as improving system performance, the update has “resolved an issue where data transfers and downloads were cancelled when trying to download content while a data transfer from a PS4 is in progress.” Text input errors tied to some PS4 games and connection stability issues in certain Wi-Fi routers have also been addressed.
Once you complete the update you’ll also be told to plug your DualSense controller into the console when you switch it on so that it can receive a firmware update. There aren’t any patch notes for the controller update, so it may just be addressing some minor issues.
If you want to download the update manually, head to Settings > System > System Software > System Software Update and Settings > Update System Software.
