The latest Xbox update brings a 4K dashboard, night more, and more

Microsoft’s October update for the Xbox Series X includes the long-awaited jump to a native 4K resolution dashboard. Previously, the system software upscaled 1080p to 4K, by which enthusiasts, including several people who work for The Verge, were not totally satisfied.

Now, you can endlessly stare at the TV in true 4K wondering what to play or watch while time slips you by.

The new 4K dashboard on Series X will bring a more crisp interface, among other elements.

The October update is adding some other quality-of-life features to both the Series X and Series S, including

Duje Caleta-Car: Guide to Liverpool’s latest centre-back transfer target – Liverpool FC

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a couple of deadline day signings in defence, with Duje Caleta-Car touted as one potential arrival. Who is he?!

The Reds’ injury woes have left us outrageously short at the back, but we’d need another centre-back coming in regardless.

Toyota GR 86, a 2200-HP Tuatara, and the Latest on Infrastructure

The company eventually deduced that a software problem was causing a communication error between the car’s stability control system and its engine computer, which caused turbocharger boost pressure to drop. BMW said it will roll out software updates to the owners of all affected cars (2021 M540i xDrive models are also impacted) starting this summer. What has Motor Trend done for you lately?
