A few weeks ago, Microsoft promised to offer more software updates for its Surface family of hardware products, including the Windows RT-based Surface RT tablet. One of the most long standing issues with the Surface RT has been with its WiFi connectivity. Today, Microsoft plans to issue a new software update to the tablet that concentrates on fixing some WiFi-related issues.
In a post on the Surface RT update history page, Microsoft says this newest software release, issued as part of its monthly "Patch Tuesday" event will fix some unnamed "Limited connectivity" issues with the tablet. This particular problem is something that has plagued the Surface RT ever since it was launched in late October.
In addition, Microsoft's update history page says the April software release will improve the WiFi on the Surface Pro so it can now "handle a wide range of access points." Finally, this update is supposed to fix system crashes in the hardware that have been"caused by certain Wi-Fi issues."
The Surface RT is now sold in 24 countries around the world, including Russia where it went on sale last week. It's far more available than the Windows 8 Pro-based Surface Pro product which at the moment is only sold in the US, Canada and China.
