Microsoft Delivers a Major Set of Surface Pro 4 Updates

Microsoft last night delivered a set of firmware updates for its Surface Pro 4 2-in-1 PC, aimed at improving reliability, performance, and battery life.

You can find out more on the Surface Pro 4 update history website, but here’s a rundown of what’s changed.

Microsoft Driver update for Surface Embedded Controller Firmware. Surface Embedded Controller Firmware 103.1684.256.0 improves battery life during sleep.

Intel Corporation driver update for Intel Precise Touch Device. Intel Precise Touch Device disables touch when cover is closed, and improves stability.

Surface driver update for Surface Integration. Surface Integration adjusts system Hibernation defaults.

Microsoft driver update for Surface Touch Servicing ML. Surface Touch Servicing ML 1.0.724.0 optimizes touch functionality.

Surface driver update for Surface System Aggregator. Surface System Aggregator 103.1610.256.0 resolves screen brightness issue when device comes out of sleep.

Surface driver update for Surface UEFI. Surface UEFI 106.1624.768.0 refines brightness settings.

Microsoft Driver update for Surface Touch. Surface Touch optimizes touch functionality.

As always, you will find these updates waiting for you in Windows Update. I am curious if these updates have anything to do with coming support for the Surface Dial on-screen on the new Surface Pen, but there’s nothing about that explicitly in the notes.
