Microsoft has released another batch of firmware updates for the Surface Go, bringing a small batch of fixes for everything from the Surface Pen to system stability. But what's curious about this batch of updates, released on February 19 according to Microsoft, is that the release notes largely mimic those of the last round of firmware updates released in November.

Here's a full look at the release notes for this week's update (via Neowin):

  • Surface Pen Firmware Update – System devices: resolves intermittent Pen top button click failure on Surface Pen with no clip, post Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
  • Surface Pen Integration Device – Human Interface Devices: enables firmware update to Surface Pen with no clip.
  • Surface UEFI – Firmware: improves system stability.
  • Surface CIF Device – System devices: improves compatibility with Windows 10 S mode.
  • Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth 4.1 – Bluetooth: improves wireless security and adds support for Bluetooth quick pairing.
  • Qualcomm Atheros Wireless Network Adapter– Network adapters: improves wireless security and Miracast support.

Note that these firmware updates only apply to the standard Surface Go; they aren't rolling out to the LTE model. If you own a Surface Go, however, you should be able to grab these updates now via Windows Update.

If you're in the market for Microsoft's budget tablet, Surface Go is available starting at $349. For more, be sure to check out our review as well.
