Microsoft Releases New Firmware Update For Surface Pro Tablets

Redmond has already announced that it will be releasing a whole bunch of security updates on Patch Tuesday, but it seems that the company has already lined up a new firmware update for the Surface Pro.

Surface RT, curiously, is not called for action in this batch of firmware improvements.

A post on the MSDN blogs indicates what is being labeled as the “Surface Pro firmware and driver pack” is being prepared for the July 2013 Patch Tuesday update cycle. No details or specifics are provided on the nature of fixes, however.

The official description goes something like this:

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

These drivers and firmware are compatible with Windows 8 Pro and Windows 8 Enterprise. These drivers and firmware are not compatible with Surface RT.”

The download link provided is yet to be updated and still takes to the June 2013 updates. But the new package should, in all probability go live in just a few hours. Maybe we will also find out the specifics of everything that is updated later today as well.

    I have seen no evidence of any such update. Perhaps this was mistaken for something else?

      Could well be. 🙁
