The PlayStation 5 is a wonderful bit of kit but, as with any new console, it's not been without its problems. Fortunately, a recently released system update for the new-gen machine (the console's second major one to date) has addressed a number of our burning issues.
Highlights include a greater focus on being able to change the control panel based on what icons you actually use, improved Remote Play features, and M.2 SSD storage expansion, which finally allows PS5 players to store and play PS5 games, PS4 games, and media apps directly from the expanded high-speed storage.
Take a look at a rundown of what the update has to offer below:
You can read up on the rest of the major changes here, but there's one minor tweak in particular that is perhaps the biggest cause for celebration. In short, the new update finally gives players the option to disable the screenshot icon that appears in the corner of the screen whenever you've taken a picture in-game.
This icon might appear inoffensive at first, but it has been a pain in the butt for players who like to lots of screenshots. The issue is that the icon lingers on the screen for a few seconds after a taking a snap, meaning it will then appear in the corner of the next few screenshots you capture. Well, that was the case. Now we're free of its tyranny and can snap until we can snap no more.

I have been wanting this since I got a PS4. Nothing like trying to take multiple screen shots in a row and every one after the first has a screenshot icon. https://t.co/moGGjJePCe- Akio Kahoshi (@AkioKahoshi) September 16, 2021
What are you waiting for? Go forth and screenshot, my friends. The icon can't hurt us anymore.
