Microsoft unveiled a new firmware update for the Surface Pro 4. In its install instructions, the company mentions that users should use the drivers and firmware to prepare custom images for enterprise deployment or to repair issues with custom installations on their Surface Pro 4 devices.

The Surface team updated the following:

  • The drivers for Surface Embedded Controller Firmware
  • The drivers for Surface Touch Servicing ML
  • The drivers for Surface Touch
  • The drivers for Surface UEFI

The updated drivers resolved some issues including a brightness problem when devices come out of sleep, refined brightness settings, optimized touch functionality, adjustment of hibernation defaults, improvements for battery life and stability during sleep, and disabled touch capability when the cover is closed.

The update also includes the following:

  • The Surface System Aggregator Software
  • Intel Precise Soft Device
  • Surface Intergation Drivers (which the company released last month for devices running Windows 10 version 1703 – the Creators Update, for Windows 10 version 1607 (Anniversary Update) and Windows 10 version 1511 – the November Update).

Microsoft says on its official page for the update that:

Cumulative and current firmware and drivers for the Surface Pro 4. This firmware and driver package contains drivers for all of the components in the Surface Pro 4, as well as updates to the system firmware that have been released via Windows Update.
