Sony has released firmware update 1.10 for its flagship full-frame DSLM Alpha 1 (ILCE-1), which includes improvements to autofocus performance and stability, as well as operational stability when used with the Imaging Edge mobile app and various Sony lenses.
Without mentioning it explicitly the 1.10 update fixes it but also user-reported problems with the IBIS camera stabilization (under certain circumstances there was a delay of a few seconds after camera startup until it was activated) and the electronic viewfinder, which sometimes stayed black due to a malfunction of the eye detection sensor.

Sony Alpha 1
The previous firmware update 1.01 already improved the operational stability of the Alpha 1 when using Imaging Edge Desktop (Remote) or Imaging Edge Mobile, and fixed an issue where a Picture Profile may be applied even though the Picture Profile function is set to Off.
The Sony Alpha 1 features a 50.1 MP (effective) sensor, which means it can now shoot 8K video in 7,680x4,320 (4:2:0, 10-bit). At the heart of the new Alpha 1 is the new multi-layer and rear-illuminated 50.1 MP Exmor RS sensor, as well as the improved BIONZ XR processor, which is up to 8 times faster.
Here are the firmware downloads, including instructions, for both Mac and Windows.
