What’s in the PS4 7.01 Update?
As stated above, this isn’t a big update. The system software update version 7.01 on PS4 brings your standard vague improvements to system performance. Don’t get your hopes up for anything notable or new in this update. At best, you may notice that your PS4 runs a touch smoother following the installation of the 7.01 update, but that could well prove to be a placebo effect as you know system performance is supposedly improved.
Typically speaking, when a new small update like this comes along that improves system performance, it may well contain bug fixes and new security measures. It’s a general fix of an update to the console itself. As such, you don’t need to worry about how much room it takes up.
Because this update doesn’t bring anything of note to the table, it’s a small download file. Weighing in at just 469.7 MB, you should have room to squeeze it in before you play. As per usual, you’ll likely need to update to the new system version before you can play online, so get that version 7.01 update downloaded and installed. Before you can install the update, however, you will likely need to accept the PS4 policy updates. This is standard practice and won’t take much of your time.
