Today we’ll tell you how to update the PS5 DualSense controller. During the few months since its launch, we have seen numerous releases of updates for both the console and its DualSense controller. And while the new versions of the console software are usually linked to more intrusive messages, or even to the disabling of some functions such as access to online features, updates to the controller could go more “unnoticed”.
How to update the PS5 DualSense controller?
The first step will be to turn on our console, since this process will be linked to an update of the same, thus making it impossible for us to perform this process through a computer.
Once this is done, we will see the notice on the screen about the availability of an update for the DualSense controller, with two options to postpone the update or start the process. So, before selecting this second option we will have to connect our controller to the console through a USB cable, since due to the need to reboot during the process, Sony does not allow a wireless update.
The rest of the process will be carried out automatically by the PS5 itself, after which, in just a few minutes, we can return to play normally.
On the other hand, if this text is not shown (mainly because we have postponed it and want to perform the process before 24 hours), we will have to resort to a small “trap” to circumvent the system.
Specifically, we will have to access the network settings of the console and disable the internet connection of the PS5 (through the route Settings > Network > Settings), after which we can change the system time with a 24-hour jump (Settings > System > Date and time) causing the reappearance of this message, allowing us to continue with the DualSense update process.
