  • Which Surface Pro is this firmware for?
  • surface pro (2017)
  • SP4 still using March 2017 iGPU drivers. What amazing support Microsoft ...
  • Many of the SP4 drivers aren't even compliant with the Fall Creators Edition of W10. This is really crazy; I bought the Surface expecting that MS would at least keep their own device updated. One thing you can do is grab the drivers for SP(2017) and extract them using msiexec. Display, network and bluetooth are all newer and seem to work well.
  • They still release drivers and firmware for the Surface Pro 3. Just be patience and you'll get some more updates.
  • need some battery life improvements for Surface Book
  • They've also released a Surface Dock update for people using the original Surface Book and Surface Book 2. Hopefully it will fix the issues.
