Microsoft Releases Firmware Updates for Surface Studio and Surface Pro LTE

Posted on June 30, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface with 5 Comments

Microsoft has announced separate sets of firmware updates for Surface Studio and Surface Pro with LTE Advanced.

But I’m pretty sure that various other Surface PCs are getting firmware updates as well. I installed a massive set of firmware updates for the Surface Book 2 the other day, and it’s unclear what happened there.

You can see that mess in the image above. But here’s what’s going on with Surface Studio and Surface Pro with LTE Advanced.

“We’ve released new driver and firmware updates for the Surface Studio and Surface Pro with LTE Advanced (Model 1807) devices,” Microsoft’s Brandon Records writes. “On Surface Pro with LTE Advanced this update includes a new Gemalto eSIM Firmware Update, improving eSIM service stability. On Surface Studio, these updates include drivers and firmware for Surface Touch, Surface Pen Settings, and Surface Pen Pairing that enable Surface Pen advanced feature support on devices running Windows 10 version 1803 or above.”

The Surface Update History website has also been updated with information about the firmware updates. Which are:
