Older Surface Laptop and Pro models get driver and firmware updates

Last week, the original Surface Studio and the Surface Pro X both got a series of driver and firmware updates from Microsoft. Now, a few more Surface devices are getting a similar treatment, with a handful of updates focusing on stability and security. Specifically, the Surface Laptop, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Pro 6, and Surface Pro 5th gen are all getting updates.

Because a lot of the hardware inside these devices is actually fairly similar, the driver updates are nearly identical across the four devices. Here's the full list:

This list applies to all four devices, excluding the Intel display driver at the top. The Surface Pro 5th gen and Surface Laptop are both getting the aforementioned version 26.20.100.7639, but the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 are getting version 26.20.100.7637. However, the changelog itself is the same in both versions.

These updates are rolling out gradually to users of these devices, so you may not see them right away. You'll also need to be using Windows 10 version 1809, or the October 2018 Update, for the updates to show up.
