The Surface Laptop 6 for Business

Microsoft has prepared a new firmware update for the Surface Laptop 6, its recently announced business-focused laptop. The June 2024 release improves thermal management when connected to a Surface Dock and fixes an odd bug with the device, thinking it is a convertible Windows PC and not a laptop.

Improvements and fixes:

  • Improves device's ability to regulate temperature effectively when linked to a Surface Dock, optimizing performance and longevity.
