Surface Pro update brings battery stability boost

Following up on updates released for the Surface Pro 3 and 4 last week, Microsoft is pushing another for its latest Surface Pro (opens in new tab) this week. And while firmware updates aren't typically exciting to begin with, this one only contains a single fix (opens in new tab) focused on improving battery stability.

Here's the official look at what's new:

  • Surface System Aggregator – Firmware: 234.2317.257.0 improves battery stability.

The update began rolling out on September 18 and is available for both the LTE and WiFi-only models running the Windows 10 Creators Update or later. If the Surface Pro is your machine of choice, you can grab this update now via Windows Update.

  • Hmm. I have the 2017 Surface Pro and I never received this update.
  • ScubaDog it's a staged rollout to groups of devices at a time. They don't instantaneously blast it out to every device at the same time.
  • Yeah, it's not showing up for me either.
  • I can say the last update did improve my Surface pro 3 battery life. I hope this improves my Surface pro 2017 also.
