Microsoft Delivers First Driver and Firmware Pack for Surface Pro LTE

Posted on December 2, 2017 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface with 2 Comments

Microsoft revealed today that it has shipped the initial driver and firmware pack for Surface Pro with LTE Advanced.

As you may know, Surface Pro with LTE Advanced targets business customers specifically, and this release is aimed at enterprise IT.

“This initial driver and firmware pack includes updates for the drivers and firmware provided on the first wave of devices shipped from the factory, commonly known as a Day 0 update,” Microsoft’s Brandon Records explains. “These updated drivers include the drivers for Surface GPS, Surface GPS Multiplexer, Surface GPS USB Multiplexer, and Surface UEFI. These updates improve system stability.”

Fixes included are:

  • Surface GPS (v12.7.2.913) improves system stability.
  • Surface GPS Multiplexer (v23.34.28.226) improves system stability.
  • Surface GPS USB Multiplexer (v23.4.3.717) improves system stability.
  • Surface UEFI (v233.1903.770.0) improves system stability.

I don’t see these updates listed on the Surface Update History website yet. In fact, it’s not clear if Surface Pro with LTE Advanced will be served by its own update history page or if these updates will be listed on the normal Surface Pro (2017) page.

But as I understand it, once a customer receives a new Surface Pro with LTE Advanced device, these updates will become available immediately via Windows Update.
