During the past few months, Microsoft has been releasing more patches for the hardware vulnerabilities. The tech giant kept its promise, and yet again it delivered more fixes. The company prepared a new firmware update for the Surface 3 devices. This will include more patches targeting the Meltdown and Spectre bugs discovered in January.

Download Surface 3 update version 1.51116.198.0

The update will fix new potential security flaws including the two mentioned above. The security improvements target systems that are running Windows 10 Creators Update and later versions of the OS.

It’s also important to note that if you already updated your Surface 3 device to the April 2018 Update, the new firmware includes Intel HD Graphics version 20.19.15.4835 which will be compatible with hi-res external displays.

Updating your device is crucial

Microsoft explains users all they need to know about the updates. Redmond tells us that for devices that are running Windows 10 version 1703 (build 15063) or Windows 10 version 1709 (build 16299) we have to download the MSI for build 15063 and above. The tech giant goes on and says that devices that are running Windows 10 version 1803 (build 17134) or above, you have to download the MSI for build 17134 and above.

All the usual recommendations targeting firmware updates are still valid, and users have to make sure that their systems are fully charged before starting the installing process by launching the installer. To avoid stability issues, it’s best to keep your device plugged while it’s installing the firmware updates.

And last, but definitely not least, it’s crucial to get the updates soon especially because they include security fixes that could save your system from all kinds of security threats that could lead to massive disaster.
