Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 owners will be glad to hear that Microsoft rolled out a series of new Intel camera driver updates, eliminating many annoying Windows Hello issues in the process. For the time being, the updates are only available for Fast Ring Insiders, but the company could soon push them to all users soon.

More precisely, the tech company rolled out seven Intel driver updates directly tied to the Surface’s cameras, improving facial recognition and by extension, Windows Hello, as we previously reported:

  • Intel driver update for Intel(R) Imaging Signal Processor 2500
  • Microsoft driver update for Surface Camera Windows Hello
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Microsoft Camera Front
  • Intel driver update for Intel(R) AVStream Camera 2500
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Microsoft IR Camera Front
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Microsoft Camera Rear
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Intel(R) Control Logic

These updates are very useful being that Windows Hello issues are among the most common bugs reported by users.

The June camera updates appear to be a sequel of May’s camera tweaks and Hello stability fixes, which included:

  • Intel Corporation driver update for Microsoft Camera Front
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Microsoft Camera Rear
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Microsoft IR Camera Front
  • Surface Camera drivers set (v30.10586.7035.1976) improves Windows Hello stability.
  • Microsoft Camera Front driver update
  • Microsoft Camera Rear driver update
  • Microsoft IR Camera Front driver update

Speaking of Surface devices, the upcoming Surface Book 2 is expected to be released in 2017 and will be powered by Intel’s latest generation of i5 and i7 processors for better performance. Surface Book 2 is expected to come free of battery issues, as Microsoft has probably learnt its lesson regarding battery management on Surface devices.
