I've expecting the Rift S today

I have a CV1 running.

This maybe a silly question, but how do I swap? Do I have to uninstall the CV1 first, or do I just unplug it and plug in the Rift S and follow the set up instructions in the Oculus app?

    Under 'devices' in the Oculus app you'll see 'Add Headset'. Click and follow instructions :)
    You already have the necessary software installed :)
    Enjoy the 'S' it's a great upgrade!

    Ya, and then maybe find that your Rift S is not that big of an upgrade and return it like I did, lol! 

    For me, I found that having a PC capable of 2.0 SS without ASW produced a better result, better tracking, much better audio, better oled blacks/contrast in darkish games, and just as comfy.  Hopefully you will be in the 'better clarity and comfort' camp.
