Microsoft brings new firmware update to Surface Pro 3

Microsoft has released its latest firmware update for the Surface Pro 3, just a few weeks after rolling out another update for the popular Windows 10 tablet.

The new firmware version is 38.12.70.0, and Microsoft's release notes state that it "improves system stability and performance when you change between power states". That should mean that owners of the device will experience fewer issues when switching between battery power and using it while it's charging.

Some Surface Pro 3 tablets were affected by issues last year that prevented the battery from retaining its charge when unplugged. However, Microsoft said that that problem was resolved in November, and there's no indication that this latest firmware update is directly connected to that.

The last update for the Pro 3 came at the end of March, in the form of a new Realtek USB 3.0 Card Reader driver to ensure compatibility with the Windows 10 Creators Update, which Microsoft released this month.
