  • I'm on the 18950 build with both SP devices I have, and haven't seen any of these updates.
  • On a Pro 6 on Slow-ring Insider, I received four of the 6 listed for the Pro 6 (not the two Pen updates), on July 9.
  • Are these the broken updates I read about?
  • I hope the Bluetooth updates include Bluetooth LE so I can get screen mirroring for the phone app.
  • I dont know why but after recent updates, my surface pro 2017's battery life drains very fast, now i just can use about 2-3 hours, before that i can use my laptop in about 4-5 hours. So sad :(
