UEFI stands for Unified Extensible Firmware Interface, the replacement for the standard BIOS on Surface tablets which was introduced with the Surface Pro 3. Now, Microsoft is improving the UEFI to allow access to the Secure Boot Control and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) features.

In order to access the UEFI, shut down the device, simultaneously press and hold the volume-up button, then press and release the power button. When the Surface logo appears, release the volume-up button. In a few seconds, you will see the UEFI menu and be warned that making any changes to the system may affect its stability.

Users can manually check for updates by going to their tablet’s Settings > Update & security > Windows Updates > Check for updates. Before starting the installation process, they will need to make sure that the battery of their Surface is at least 40% charged.
