Alongside the general system stability improvements found in every firmware update, the 7.1 update introduces a fix for a specific issue that happens with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!

You can find the full update notes below.

General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience, including:

Resolved an issue where the Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games cannot reconnect to the Pokémon GO app if the game software was closed after pairing with the app.

The new update should download automatically to your console. In case it doesn’t, open system settings and begin the download. After the download is complete, the update will be installed automatically to let you enjoy the improved system stability.
