What you need to know

  • The Surface Duo is getting its March 2022 security update.
  • The update is 236MB.
  • The update bumps the system from version 2022.111.64 to 2022.113.26 and improves stability.

Following a few days after the recent Surface Duo 2 March update, the original Surface Duo is now due for its patch.

There's not a whole lot new in this monthly update, which comes in at 236MB, but besides the latest security fixes, it does improve "device stability," according to the changelog (opens in new tab).

The update follows the more significant February release, which tidied up after the big Android 11 release in January, in addition to bringing Apps support to Your Phone.

Like previous Surface Duo releases, this initial wave is only for unlocked device versions. AT&T-branded Surface Duos are likely to get the patch sometime next week, and we'll update this article accordingly.

To grab the update on Surface Duo, follow these instructions:

  1. Connect to a Wi-Fi network.
  2. Select Settings on your Surface Duo home screen.
  3. Select System.
  4. Select System Update.
  5. Select Check for update.
  6. Select Restart now.

Let us know in comments how the update went for you and if you noticed any other fixes.

  • Att model is up already.
  • Nice! Checking for the update now…
  • Would be good to get previous reviewers of the device to reevaluate it with this update installed... Hopefully the Duo 3 will come with Android 12L and a stable software release which would be essential this time around to achieve positive reviews...
  • It's night and day much better now on the Duo, Software wise, it should have been like this out of the box, but I'll take it, I'll be holding off upgrading till the Duo 3, and I'm hoping Microsoft can make the Duo 3 design more refined with the camera bump, i know that's hard with such a thin device, but the OG Duo looks better, just my opinion though.
  • It's super ironic that my OG Surface Duo received its March update, the same day as my Pixel 6 Pro 🤣, keep it up Microsoft!
