Update: Microsoft has since posted release notes for this batch of firmware updates. You can check them out here.

If you own a Surface Pro 4, you may want to check Windows Update for a batch of firmware updates that are now rolling out. As per usual, the Surface Pro 4 update history (opens in new tab) page hasn't been updated with details yet, so its not entirely clear what's new.

Curiously, judging by a tip we received and an ongoing Reddit thread, this batch of firmware updates is actually labeled with older release dates. We're not sure what's going on, but it's similar to a firmware release that began rolling out to the Surface Studio last night, dated November 18.

We'll know more once Microsoft adds details to its Surface Update History page. In the meantime, if you own a Surface Pro 4, you should be able to grab these firmware releases via Windows Update now.

Thanks to Wes for the tip!

  • Cool! will check when I get home.
  • mine got updated, but haven't noticed any thing.
  • Switched mine on today and BAM those updates were there waiting
  • SUPER SPEED after updates so FAST  
  • Yes, the update upgraded my CPU to an i7 and quadrupled the RAM to 16gb, nice work Microsoft!
  • Wow, mine upgraded to an Amd Zen. Really happy now.
  • Seems faster
  • Well done. Now my surface dock only works with only one of my two external monitors. Will the next update stop it working with the last one so I can only use the surface screen?????? How about MS checking updates before releasing them.
    Just when I was liking my SP4  
  • Right for those of you that have had that issue I found a workaround (not that I should of had too).
    Two monitors using HDMI stopped working right after the update. Luckly I have various adapters so one is into the HDMI and the other adapter is a DVI and it works.
  • One more firmware update this morning. "Microsoft driver update for Surface Storage Firmware Update." (A fix for some of those failures?)
  • I am just happy. It runs faster and after a long time it actually upgrades to W10AE.
