Amid all the conjecture about Microsoft releasing their Surface all-in-one, recently they launched several updates for their Surface Pro 4, Surface Book and Surface 3 devices, along with addressing some battery and Book power issues.

In the September firmware update, Microsoft has vitally focused on delivering users a five-star instead of a three-stars experience. For Microsoft, this year has been about making efforts to wave off all battery-life challenges, address the restless sleep problems connected to the Standby feature as well as updating drivers for their pre-existing Surface devices.

To access the September driver updates, check for updates in Windows or your device’s Windows update history or even manually download it from the Microsoft’s Download Center. There are a total of 9 updates released by Microsoft and touch stability, pen pairing, and enhanced power capacity are the outshining aspects among the updates introduced for the latest Surface 2-in-1s.
