Surface Go 2 gets firmware updates to improve stability and reliability

Microsoft is currently rolling out a series of firmware and driver updates to the Surface Go 2, its more affordable tablet that launched earlier this year. These updates address a series of issues, aiming to improve the overall stability and reliability of the device.

Specifically, the updates should improve wireless connections such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, usability with the Surface Dock 2, and power delivery through the USB Type-C port. Here's the full list of updates:

In order to get the updates, your Surface Go 2 will have to be running the Windows 10 November 2019 Update or newer, but that should be guaranteed, since the device launched this spring. As usual, it's worth keeping in mind that these updates can roll out gradually, and not everyone will necessarily see them at the same time.

The updates should install automatically, but you can always check for updates in Windows Update if you've been experiencing any issues that might be fixed with these.
