Update: February 17, 2023 at 11:55 AM ET

Due to the 318 MB size of the update, we initially believed that it included more than security improvements. That is not the case, however, as Microsoft's change log specifies that today's update is only a security update. The update is also available for the original Surface Duo.

What you need to know

  • An update for the Surface Duo 2 and original Surface Duo is rolling out now.
  • The update is available for unlocked Surface Duo 2 devices in the United States.
  • Microsoft has not shared a change log yet, but the update is 318 MB, so it's more than a simple security update.

Microsoft is rolling out an update for the Surface Duo 2 and Surface Duo. The update is available for unlocked devices in the United States. Twitter user Javid Majid flagged the update to our team. There doesn't appear to be a change log at this point, but the update is 318 MB, so it's more than just security updates.

We won't know exactly what's in the update until Microsoft releases a change log. It could be a large number of fixes, or it could be more significant.

Surface Duo & Duo 2 February Update: What's new

  • Addresses scenarios outlined in the Android Security Bulletin - February 2023.

The last update for the Surface Duo 2 shipped in December. That update included security improvements and a fix for a bug that would stop certain phone calls from working.

The Surface Duo 2 has run out of stock at several retailers. Microsoft confirmed that it is committed to the Surface Duo line but did not clarify if production on the foldable has stopped.

According to our Senior Editor Zac Bowden's sources, the next version of the Surface Duo will not be a dual-screen device. Instead, Microsoft will shift to a design with a foldable display, much like the Vivo X Fold and Honor Magic Vs.
