Microsoft rolls out updates for Surface Book 3, Laptop 3, and Pro 7

A handful of Microsoft's Surface devices are getting a slew of driver and firmware updates this week, including the Surface Laptop 3, Book 3, and Pro 7. All of the devices getting updates are powered by Intel Ice Lake processors, and a few of the updates appear to be the same across the different devices.

Starting with the Surface Book 3, which launched earlier this year, the updates address a few different areas, including wireless communications, audio, and the display. Here's the full list:

As usual, the updates require Windows 10 version 1903 or newer to be installed, which should be the case for everyone, as these devices were all launched after that update was released. It's possible that you won't see the updates right away, since they tend to roll out gradually to all devices. You can wait for them to install automatically or check for updates in Windows Update to see if they show up for you.
