  • The update includes several critical security fixes and stability improvements.
  • Surface Studio 2 devices running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update or later will receive the firmware update.

Microsoft's Surface Studio 2 recently received a firmware update. The update is available for devices running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903) or higher. As is usually the case, there aren't any new features with this firmware update. Instead, it includes several security fixes and stability improvements.

Here's everything that's new, as found on Microsoft's support page for the device:

Device Manager NameVersion and Update
Surface UEFI - Firmware532.3732.768.0
- Addresses critical security vulnerability and improves system stability.
Surface ME - Firmware11.8.86.3877
- Addresses critical security vulnerability and improves system stability.
Intel Management Engine Interface – System devices2102.100.0.1044
- Addresses critical security vulnerability and improves system stability.

While the Surface Studio 2 looks like a modern device, it may not be able to upgrade to Windows 11 later this year. It's not on the list of supported devices for Windows 11 at the moment. Many Surface devices have a "Free upgrade to Windows 11" badge on their Microsoft Store listings. The Surface Studio 2 does not, even though it's the latest model from its respective category.

Updates to Surface devices roll out in stages, so you might not see this firmware update yet. You may have to click the "View optional updates" link in the Update section of the Windows Settings app to see the latest update. The update started rolling out on July 15, 2021.

  • "While the Surface Studio 2 looks like a modern device, it may not be able to upgrade to Windows 11" Wait, whut? So 1.5 years ago I've paid 4200 euros for a computer that is still being sold at this very moment, but it cannot upgrade to the latest OS? Wow, if that's really going to happen..., that's truly unacceptable and will piss me off greatly.
  • Agreed! I have Studio 1 and I downloaded the developers windows 11 and it runs smooth as butter on my i5 base model with 8gb of ram! It actually runs better it feels like. I didn't spend as much as you, but I agree its ridiculous. Hopefully they get enough backlash over this and they re-consider for all of those who purchased these expensive machines that had outdated hardware when they were released haha!
