Surface Pro with Advanced LTE gets its first firmware updates

At the beginning of this month, Microsoft finally released the Surface Pro with Advanced LTE, which it promised to do earlier this year. While it's still only available for business customers - consumers will be able to buy it next year - the company has released the device's first series of driver and firmware updates.

Most of the updates are from Qualcomm and focus on the GPS, but there's also a UEFI firmware update. All of them focus on improving system styability. Here's the full changelog:
