Surface 3 Gets a New Set of Firmware Updates

Less than two weeks after delivering a massive set of firmware updates for Surface 3, Microsoft has issued a new set of updates for its entry-level tablet.

Dubbed System Firmware Update – 2/4/2016, this set of updates includes the following:

Surface UEFI update (v1.51116.78.0) recalibrates touch panel.

Surface Touch Controller Firmware update (v4.251.60.0) recalibrates touch panel.

Surface Platform Power Driver update (v2.1.36.1) improves charging.

Naturally, it’s curious that Microsoft would issue two sets of updates so closely to each other, though the firm has several times in the past released multiple sets of firmware updates in a given month.
