install microsoft surface updates

Microsoft recently pushed a series of updates to Surface devices.

Even though these are only small improvements, you should check for updates, especially if you experienced driver update issues lately.  The latest Surface updates are available for both the  first and second versions of Surface Laptops.

If the original version of the Surface Laptop and the one released last year, are still running Windows 10 v1803 or a newer OS versions, they should get the new firmware as soon as it’s available.

On the other hand, if your Surface Laptop still runs the Windows 10 Fall Creator Update (the oldest version of Windows 10 that is still getting updates fro Home and Pro Users), then the best option is to first update your device to the latest Windows 10 version in order to receive the new firmware update.

Surface Studio 2 driver updates

This month, Microsoft added some improvements concerning the driver update experience for the Surface Studio 2. Unfortunately, there are no new updates for the Surface Pro 6.

Surface Laptop driver improvements

According to the official changelog, the Surface Laptop firmware brings only driver improvements. This decision was made because of the Surface Intersil Ambient Light Sensor (HID) that is affected by version 4.1.139.0.

This patch should improve the stability of the device.

No firmware updates for other Surface models

At the moment, there is no information from Microsoft concerning a new update for the other Surface Laptop models.

We’ll keep an eye on this matter and inform you if Microsoft decides to roll out new firmware updates to the other Surface Laptop models.
