Surface Pro 6 and Laptop 2 get firmware updates; some exclusive to Windows 10 1809

Last week, Microsoft's Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 became available, and now they're getting their first firmware and driver updates. Interestingly, some of the updates are exclusive to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, or version 1809, despite it being pulled from Windows Update earlier this month due to quality issues.
