Surface Pro 4 nabs new batch of firmware updates

A whole new batch of firmware updates is now available for the Surface Pro 4.

Microsoft has started rolling out new firmware to the Surface Pro 4, bringing along updates that seem to be aimed mostly at the camera and image processing.

Unfortunately, there aren't yet any official release notes available via the Surface Update History page just yet. That's not out of the ordinary, particularly with recent updates. However, we can get a decent idea of what's been changed by how the updates are listed in Windows Update. Here's a look:

  • Intel Corporation driver update for Microsoft IR Camera Front.
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Microsoft Camera Front
  • Intel driver update for Intel(R) AVStream Camera 2500
  • Intel driver update for Intel(R) Imaging Signal Processor 2500
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Intel(R) CSI2 Host Controller
  • Surface - System 8/1/2017 12:00:00 AM - 1.0.85.1
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Intel(R) Control Logic
  • Intel Corporation driver update for Microsoft Camera Rear

This follows a previous Surface Pro 4 firmware update from early August, in which Microsoft corrected some issues with the camera concerning Windows Hello. Presumably, Microsoft will update the Surface Update History page with full release notes within the coming days. We'll update with more information once available.

Thanks, Chris, for the tip!
