    No, updating your firmware does not magically give you better battery life.

    I know it won't magically give me extra life, but I was wondering if the latest code has any improvements relating battery, as I remember that an update increasing loading time which may affect the battery.

    if you want better battery life, you will have a few options. replace your battery with a new one. replace your battery with the updated switch models battery. buy a new ipatched or markio switch. use a charging case or external charger.
