new Surface firmware updates

In a previous post, we reported that Microsoft released new Windows 10 Cumulative Updates to fix various issues with some UK government websites.

Now, the company released another batch of firmware and driver updates for various Surface devices.

Windows Insiders who are currently running Windows 10 v1903 can now install the latest updates. The release of both of these updates is an indication that Microsoft is gearing up for the release of May 2019 Update this week.

Microsoft released these driver updates for almost all the supported Surface models. However, the company skipped Surface Go LTE Advanced and Wi-Fi only editions. It is surprising to see that Microsoft is still supporting its 5 years old Surface Pro 3.

The tech giant released network adapters updates for Surface Studio 2 devices including Bluetooth and Ethernet. Microsoft covered various components of the Surface Pro 6 device in its recent series of updates.

Surface Pro 6 known issues

However, the company acknowledged a known issue that affects Surface Pro 6 devices. The company says that the Intel Graphics Control Panel is not compatible with the device. You can avoid any potential issues by uninstalling the application until the company has fixed the issue.

Furthermore, Microsoft released a long list of updates to Surface Laptop 2 devices. This release also introduced some known issues, including the Intel Graphics Control Panel hitting Surface Pro 6.

Similar updates were also rolled out to Surface Book 2, first-gen Surface Laptop and the fifth-gen Surface Pro devices. 

Thankfully, the list of updates for Surface Studio was relatively small. These updates were related to network devices. Moreover, the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book received a series of system updates alongside the updates for Bluetooth, and camera. 

Similarly, Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3 received a small list of updates including changes for Bluetooth and Network adapters. You can check out the Surface Update History page for detailed information. 

New Surface Books 2 and Surface Pro 6 models coming in June

Some recent reports suggest that Microsoft is releasing new variants for the Surface Book 2 and Surface Pro 6 laptops.

Notably, Microsoft is yet to confirm the upcoming models that are expected to arrive on the 18th of June. Some specifications mentioned on the Best Buy Canada website confirm that both models will feature a Core i5 processor, 256 GB storage and 16 GB RAM.
