Thanks to a dataminer named OatmealDome, we get to see more about the patch updates but don't get your hopes up as the changes in this patch are only very minimal and too little to celebrate.

Another change has also been done:

“The “BCAT” system module was changed in some way, but I’m not sure how. That being said, it's probably a bug fix (or fixes?) given how different reports show no major changes.

This Nintendo Switch System Update 16.0.1 isn't really huge in terms of changes but it gives a better fluid experience for its users. While we wait for more news if there will be significant changes to its system and how it works, that might only happen if and when a newer version of the Nintendo Switch comes out especially with the rumors and leaks that there is a new chip that is being worked on for the newest model to come out.
