Surface Pro 6 Gets New Firmware Update

Posted on April 6, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Microsoft, Microsoft Surface with 9 Comments

Microsoft released a new firmware update for the Surface Pro 6 earlier this week. On the 4th of April, Microsoft released a new set of updates for Surface Pro 6 devices running the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803) or newer.

The new update comes with the usual set of firmware updates, and there aren’t really any notable fixes. It does, however, come with a fix that resulted in the CPU throttling to a mere 400MHz in some cases, and it also improves battery stability, and Type Cover connectivity problems:

Surface Pro 6 isn’t the only Surface device that might have gotten a new update. German blog WindowsArea is reporting that the company also released a new set of firmware updates for the Pro 5 (Surface Pro), and it comes with a much longer list of fixes. Microsoft still hasn’t updated the update history page for the device listing the new update, though, so we aren’t quite sure if this update was actually shipped to users. Here’s the alleged changelog, anyway:

  • Intel Corporation – Display – 24.20.100.6293: Improves the stability of the browser.

    My Surface Pro 2017 received multiple firmware updates, this does look about right.

    I had the 400Mhz throttling issue a couple of times. It happened when it was left plugged into the dock and not used for several days. After that it would throttle when ever the dock or power adapter was plugged in and it took a while resolve it (just a reboot didn't fix it). Other than that, awesome device!

    My Surface Pro (2017) did get a long list of updates like that. Oddly, most of them had dates on them suggesting they were old updates from last year or the year before that had somehow randomly decided they needed applying again. Sounds like they were actually new updates with old dates. They seemed to apply OK though.

    The Surface PRO 5 updates were already deployed to insiders at least one month ago

    I'm on the 20H1 builds. I didn't see any of those updates.

    Easily, the article is actually the best topic on this registry related issue. I fit in with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your next updates.
