Surface Go is Updated for Windows 10 Version 1809

Posted on November 14, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface with 3 Comments

With the October 2018 Update finally out in the wild again, Microsoft’s Surface Go has received a ton of firmware updates to support that release.

The firmware update batch is dated November 9, 2018, but I’m pretty sure no one saw these updates until the October 2018 Update was finally re-released this past Tuesday.

No matter. Here’s what’s new:

Surface – System – Surface Pen Firmware Update – System devices resolves intermittent pen top button click failure on Surface Pen with no clip, post-Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

Surface – HIDClass – Surface Pen Integration Device – Human Interface Devices enables firmware update to Surface Pen with no clip.

Surface – Firmware – 1.0.10. Surface UEFI – Firmware improves system security and stability and ensures display of the On-Screen Keyboard during BitLocker unlock prompts at boot.

Surface – System – Surface CIF Device – System devices improves compatibility with Windows 10 S mode.

Qualcomm Atheros Communications – Bluetooth – Atheros Bluetooth 4.1 – Bluetooth improves wireless security and adds support for Bluetooth quick pairing.

Qualcomm Atheros Communications – Net – Qualcomm Atheros Wireless Network Adapter– Network adapters improves wireless security and Miracast support.

Realtek Semiconductor Corp. – Firmware – 1.0.13. Surface Power Delivery – Firmware improves external monitor display compatibility with some USB-C to HDMI adapters.

Given the incredibly slow performance of this PC, you’ll want to budget some time for these updates to install offline.
