Microsoft last week posted downloads for firmware and driver updates for the new Surface Dock 2. There's no word on what's fixed or improved with these updates. However, driver updates are available for every supported Surface device.
The update version is listed as 1.0, and the date published is June 9. Several files are available to download, with specific files containing drivers for select Surface devices. From Microsoft (opens in new tab) (via Reddit):
For home users, it's likely you're already receiving updates via Windows Update. These packages are mainly meant for PCs that are using a Surface Dock and aren't connected to the internet. It also gives IT managers more control over what is installed on specific systems they've deployed.
The Surface Dock 2 was introduced at Microsoft's spring hardware event, and it's the first update the dock has seen in years. The main additions to the Surface Dock 2 are four USB-C ports. The dock also supplies 199 watts of power to devices connected to it.
