Surface Pro 4 picks up another batch of firmware updates

Today, Microsoft updated its Surface Update History page to reflect a bundle of firmware updates that are rolling out for the Pro 4. They're dated September 14, but the page only just added them.

Oddly enough, there's still no word on the updates that rolled out almost three weeks ago. There were quite a few drivers that rolled out on the first, but there's still no changelog.

Today's updates include additional support for the new Type Cover and Signature Type Covers, adding onto the keyboard driver that was released back in July. Here's the full changelog:

Windows Update History Name Device Manager Name

According to Microsoft's Value Indicator chart, this group of updates improves compatibility, and doesn't affect security, reliability, connectivity, performance, or battery life. To install them, go to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates. It's available for anyone on the Anniversary Update or later.
