A PlayStation 5 DualSense controller firmware updater app may be coming soon to PC and Mac, according to a recent discovery.
Reddit user Kgarvey discovered a cached End User License Agreement for this firmware updater on the PlayStation official website, which, unfortunately, doesn’t reveal much about the app, other than the fact that it is coming.

The release of a PlayStation 5 DualSense controller firmware upgrader app may hint at better DualSense support for PC games. As of now, multiple titles do support the DualSense unique features like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, but only when wired, so hopefully they will become available via Bluetooth as well in the future.
The PlayStation 5 DualSense controller launched together with the console back in November 2020, and a new version of the controller has since been released, featuring stronger springs for triggers that should make them harder to break, compared to the original version of the controller.
