Game developers use software updates to fix slow performance issues, so if you keep experiencing problems, try and check for updates for both your console and games. Software updates for your Xbox Series X|S and its games and apps should be downloaded and installed automatically, according to Xbox. However, if you find that they’re not, you can always turn them on by toggling the following settings.
- Navigate to Profile & system > Settings > System > Updates.
- Select “Keep my games & apps up to date” under the Updates section.
This will allow your Xbox Series X|S to download and install updates to your games, apps, and system software while you’re away from your console, but if you want to keep your games up-to-date manually, you can still do so.
- To check if a system software update is available, navigate to Profile & system> Settings > System > Updates.
- Under Updates, choose “Console update available” if you have the option.
You can check to see if any games need updating by selecting them from the Home menu and selecting the Menu button on your controller.
