Among other things.
Microsoft have been so good with persistent updates for the Xbox One that at this point, I am struggling to think of any fundamental, big name features that are left to add to the system. So what do they do with future updates? Why, they improve everything that they do have down, of course.
Take this newest update, for instance. Among other things, it enables faster downloads on the system, by up to 40% faster than they were before if you have an internet connection 100Mbps or slower, and a staggering 80% faster if your internet connection is faster than 100Mbps.
Downloads in general have been sped up with the new update, which also works on fixing some of the other things in the background, including the wireless connectivity of the controller (which has always been a sore point of contention among many on the Xbox One).
You can check out the full details of the firmware update for yourself below.

Download speeds will be influenced by network contention within the home and at the ISP level. Download speeds will also be impacted when games are running on the console as system resources are prioritized for gameplay over background downloads.
