Surface Go Got a Day One Firmware Update

Posted on August 4, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface with 42 Comments

With all of Microsoft’s Surface PC getting massive sets of firmware updates in recent weeks, I was wondering how Surface Go would fair.

Well, there’s good news and bad news: Surface Go owners did, in fact, have to install a firmware update on August 2, the device’s first day of availability. But it was literally just a single update.

The Surface Go Update History website has the details, which are minor: Surface UEFI – Firmware 1.0.3 improves system stability.

This is nothing like the massive sets of firmware updates that have deviled owners of the Surface Book 2, Surface Pro 4, Surface Laptop, and Surface Pro (2017). But then it’s reasonable to assume that Surface Go, a new PC, shipped with the most up-to-date firmware and drivers out of the box.

And that’s good news: Given how slow Surface Go is, I can only imagine how long it would take to basically reinstall every driver on the PC.
