Xbox One’s June System Software Update “Near Release;” New Version in Preview

on June 3, 2015 4:04 PM

If you’re eager to get your hands on June’s system software update for the Xbox One, but you’re not a preview member, fear not, because the wait shouldn’t be too long.

Program Manager Emily Hanson posted the patch notes for a new preview version on the private preview forums, also mentioning that the public release is getting close:

“A new update will be available to all Preview members beginning at 6PM on 6/2. This small tweaks under the hood as we near release.”


OS version released: xb_rel_1506.150601-2200
Available: 6:00PM PT 6/2 (2AM GMT 3/6) 


  • Small tweaks under the hood.

As usual, if you’re not part of the preview program, but would like to be, you can mention it in the comments (including your gamertag), and another reader might be able to send you an invite.

Just remember that this is a beta testing program, so you understand and accept the responsibility for any issues caused to your console, since preview members do it to make the launch of each patch smoother for everyone else, and not just to get a sneak peek on future updates.
