So how do you think a firmware update is going to allow aperture control? The physical controls are not setup to allow an easy use of a lens that lacks an aperture ring.

No mystery here - the current XF lenses all have electronic aperture control controlled by the aperture ring.  It should be a trivial task to modify the software to offer the option to control the aperture via the command dial on the upper right of the back of the body instead.
