I've always done manual firmware update. If you want to get some new features, you have to reboot the device after updating with wifi activated.
As soon as the device start, you will have darkmode, for example.

Unfortunately it is not that simple. I did manual update and rebooted several times and it still took many weeks for Dark Mode to show up on one of my 2 Paperwhites. I never use Airplane mode.

I rarely if ever use page flip. I want the progress bar back as a choice offered as part of the Aa Reading Progress menu.

I note that this update is implemented for the Voyage reader but not for the PW3! Hardware limitations? I have a PW3 Manga with 32 GB that I got on Woot some time back. Weren't the PW3 and Voyage introduced about the same time?

Upthread this is some evidence that some PW3’s have gotten 5.13.1 (but no MobileRead users yet). But if it isn’t available for download, I am not sure what to make of this report.
