A handful of Microsoft's Surface devices have already received firmware and driver updates over the past few days, and today, it's time for the Surface Pro 6 to join the fray. The 2-in-1 tablet first released over two years ago is getting a set of updates focused on improving stability and security.

Most of the updates seem to be Intel-related, including a new graphics driver. Here's the full list:

Windows Udpate History Name Device Manager Name Update
Intel Corporation – Display – 27.20.100.8681 Intel(R) HD Graphics – Display adapters

Improves graphics and system stability.

Intel Corporation – Extension - 27.20.100.8681 Intel® Display Graphics Adapter Driver Extension

Addresses security updates and improves system stability.

Intel - Extension - 1952.14.0.1470 Intel(R) ICLS Client - Extension

Addresses security updates and improves system stability.

Intel – SoftwareComponent - 1.62.321.1 Intel(R) ICLS Client - Software devices

Addresses security updates and improves system stability.

Intel - System - 2040.100.0.1029 Intel(R) Management Engine Interface - System devices

Addresses security updates and improves system stability.

Surface - Firmware - 11.8.82.3838 Surface ME - Firmware

Addresses security updates and improves system stability.

The updates for the Surface Pro 6 come very shortly after the Surface Studio 2 got its own set of updates. The two devices were announced at the same event in late 2018, and while the Surface Pro 6 has already received a few successors, we have yet to see a follow-up to the Studio 2, so that's still Microsoft's flagship all-in-one.

As usual, you'll need to be running Windows 10 version 1903 or newer to get the updates, but since that version is no longer supported by Microsoft, you should already be using something newer. You can find the updates in the Settings app under Windows Update. Alternatively, you can download the latest driver package from here.
