Microsoft rolling out new driver and firmware updates for the Surface Laptop 3

Microsoft has released a set of driver and firmware updates for the Surface Laptop 3. The updates are rolling out for devices sporting Intel processors, which are Ice Lake parts that are housed in the 13.5-inch variant and the 15-inch variant sold to business users. The Laptop 3 comes in both Intel and AMD flavors. The latter ships in the consumer-focused 15-inch version.

As for the updates themselves, it is a modest one with a bunch of Intel-specific fixes that focus on the security and stability of various components. There are also the usual stability and reliability improvements brought by the UEFI firmware updates and the like, for the device. Here is the complete changelog with the list of fixes:

The update is available for devices running Windows 10 version 1903 – the May 2019 Update – or newer. This means that it applies to all Laptop 3 devices since they shipped with that version of the OS in late 2019. However, with version 1903 now officially out of support, most devices should have already been served a newer version.

As usual, these updates will be delivered automatically to all users via Windows Update. However, you can manually head into the settings and check for updates to see if the release is ready to be downloaded and installed. Considering that firmware updates roll out in a staggered manner, it might be a while before all devices receive the bits.
