The Surface team updated the following:

  • The drivers for Surface Embedded Controller Firmware

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
