Microsoft is once again releasing some firmware updates for Surface devices. This time, it's the Surface Pro 6 and the fifth-generation Surface Pro that are getting updated, with each getting a single update.
The updates are actually nearly identical between the two devices, addressing security issues and improving the overall stability of the experience. For the Surface Pro 6, the update information is as follows:
|Windows Update History Name||Device Manager Name||Update|
|Surface – Firmware – 235.3261.255.0||Surface UEFI – Firmware||
Addresses security updates and improves system stability.
For the fifth-generation Surface Pro - or Surface Pro 5, as the page sometimes refers to it - the changelog is the same, but the update will come with version number 235.3440.768.0. They're pretty unexciting updates, but if you've been having problems with your device, this might help. There are no known issues with the update on either device, so it's presumably safe to go ahead and install it.
As usual, the update requires users to be running Windows 10 version 1903 or newer. Most users will probably already be running a newer version of the OS, so it shouldn't make a huge difference, but if you're running an outdated version for some reason, you'll need to update Windows 10 first. Also, it's possible that the update is rolling out gradually, so you may not see it right away.
