New Updates For Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Improve Battery and Security
A firmware update for Surface Pro 3 and three new driver updates improve the performance of the Surface Tablets launched by Microsoft in 2014. The recently rolled out updates address the battery management feature, while they also bring a security update for the Bluetooth and WLAN drivers from Marvell, via MS PowerUser.
There is currently little information available on the content of the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 updates. However, Surface Pro 3 users who are running Windows 10 Creators Update Version 1703 or later will automatically receive updates via the Windows Update client.
Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Updates Are Not Available on Download Center
Users will have to be patient if they prefer to update their Surface Pro 3 devices manually. That is applicable for all those who want to wait and see if there are any problems with the new version since the latest SurfaceBook 2 updates caused several issues that, eventually, forced Microsoft to shut down the upgrades distribution.
The new updates are not yet available on Microsoft’s Download Center where only the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 November update is offered.
