  • Got the listed Surface Studio updates on my Surface Pro 4 as well, in addition to 2021-04 Cumulative Update Preview for 20H2 being available. Always nice to see the minimum support window of 5 years, especially since the past few months have seen way too many exploits actually being exploited in the computing world.
  • Reasonably happy with the Duo for what it is.
    I think its about time we heard about the next release of the system which was promised for the summer period. I am hoping I shall be able to use my hearing aids a s all pixel and Samsung devices support the related drivers
