Surface 3 Firmware Update Improves Touchpad and Power Driver
Microsoft is all about updates these days. After delivering new Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile builds, and a new firmware update for latest Lumia devices, the company now prepared a firmware update for its Surface 3 line.
Surface 3 Firmware Update Features
The latest firmware update for Surface 3 devices will be listed as “System Firmware Update – 2/4/2016,” and here’s the complete changelog of the update:
- Surface UEFI update (v1.51116.78.0) recalibrates touch panel.
- Surface Touch Controller Firmware update (v126.96.36.199) recalibrates touch panel.
- Surface Platform Power Driver update (v188.8.131.52) improves charging.
To make sure you received the update (as well as general Windows updates), head to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and check for updates. This update is being rolled out gradually, so it may take some time until it arrives on your Surface 3 device.
Surface 3 is currently on discount in the US, so if you consider buying one, you can purchase it from Microsoft Store for $100 less. As always, the new Surface 3 comes with one-year Office 365 subscription, and Microsoft will give you another $30 discount, if you decide to purchase the Surface 3 with the Docking station, by the end of February.
It is good to see that Microsoft still provides updates for its older devices, since Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book are out for quite some time. But Surface 3 is still a very popular device, so the fact that Microsoft still cares about it is not surprising.
