Microsoft rolls out driver updates for Surface devices on the May 2019 Update

It's starting to seem likely that Microsoft is preparing to make the Windows 10 May 2019 Update generally available this week, and the company has recently released a ton of driver and firmware updates for the majority of its Surface devices. These updates are only available for those running Windows 10 version 1903, which at this point, means only Insiders should be getting them.

Almost every supported Surface device has received some driver updates, with the only exception being the Surface Go, both in its Wi-Fi only and LTE Advanced editions. Even the 2015 Surface 3, which hadn't received device-specific updates since December, is still being supported, as is the Surface Pro 3, which is almost five years old now.

If you're rocking a Surface Studio 2, you're mostly getting updates for network adapters, be it Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or Bluetooth. Here's what's new:
