Everyone on the Windows Insider Team has been very busy as of late: Microsoft rolled out a series of updates and builds in June, improving the Windows 10 experience.

The team pushed out Mobile build 14356 which brought three new Cortana features and a plethora of bug fixes, sent invites for the Xbox One Anniversary Update preview, and allowed users to see download sizes of apps in the Windows Store.

We can honestly say that the new Insider Team leader means serious business judging by all the updates and improvements recently rolled out.

However, these are the public updates: recently, Microsoft rolled out an update for its Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 without saying a word about it. This new driver update is dated 5/17/2016, while the version number is 30.10586.7076.2424.

The news was leaked by an Insider on Twitter, and it appears that the update is actually a new driver stabilizer for the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4.

There is no changelog available to know for sure what issues are targeted by these updates, but it appears it addresses Windows Hello speed and reliability bugs.

Some think the updates finally solves sleep issues once and for all. Previously, many users reported not being able to take their Surface devices out of sleep mode properly, although Microsoft previously rolled out a special update for this bug.

Overall, users managed to install the update without problems, but some reported sound issues afterward. More precisely, all audio was lost, while media player apps simply crashed soon after they were launch.

Luckily, running the Troubleshooting tool solved the problem. In any case, the new driver is available for both Slow Ring and Fast Ring Insiders.

Microsoft’s dedication to improving the user experience for Surface Book and Surface Pro4 users roots in the success of its devices. In Q1, Surface sales grew by 61% driven by the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4.
