Enable Auto Updates Of Games & Apps On Your PS5

Keeping your PS5 games up to date is crucial to ensure that they are running at their best with fewer bugs as updates normally help iron out some of the issues a game was facing.

Also by enabling your Playstation 5 to automatically update your games, there is less chance that you’re going to get an interruption when you boost a game then it pops up asking you to install an update before you can play!

Enabling this option will also allow your apps to auto update on your PS5.

Your games and apps will auto-update whilst your PS5 is in rest mode, so when you go to use your Playstation 5, everything should be up to date.
