Microsoft details next updates coming to the Surface Pro 3

If you own a Surface Pro 3, Microsoft will be pushing out new updates in the near future that will fix a few bugs and improve the experience you have with the device. Microsoft is providing the change-log ahead of time to keep the enterprise informed of upcoming changes.

So what all is going to be changed in the next update for the Pro 3? The change log is posted below:

Surface Pro UEFI update (v3.11.350.0)

  • Resolves scenarios where the device will boot to a black screen if McAfee Defense Encryption 7.1.1 is installed.
  • Optimizes the FWPOST time to 3.7 seconds with the fast boot enabled.
  • Prevents situations where system clock loses time when battery falls below 3%.

Surface Home Button driver update (v2.0.1174.0)

  • Along with the pen update below, this helps prevent scenarios where device may accidentally wake up from sleep while being stored or carried.

Surface Pen Settings driver update (v2.5.14.0)

  • Along with the home button driver update above, this helps to prevent scenarios where the device may accidentally wake up from sleep while being stored or carried.

Wireless Network Controller and Bluetooth driver update (v15.68.3066.135)

  • Enables better throughput after waking from sleep and connecting to an 802.11AC network.
  • Ensures Infra scan list is not empty while connected to a wireless display adapter.
  • Resolves an issue connecting to Cisco 1242 access points.
  • Ensures device reconnects properly to a hidden SSID using a 5Ghz DFS channel after waking from sleep.
  • Adds customer-requested functionality to prefer 5Ghz connections when both a 2.4ghz and 5ghz connection are present with the same SSID.

While Microsoft does not explicitly say when these updates will be released, they should be arriving in the near future.

Based on the post where Microsoft stated these upcoming changes, we can likely expect to see these updates posted each month (provided there are Surface updates) ahead of their release.
