Microsoft has released a new firmware update for the first- and second-gen Surface Pro X. The June 2022 update is available for devices with the SQ1 and SQ2 processors running Windows 10 20H1 and newer. It contains new drivers, performance improvements, and a mysterious "support for future Windows OS release", which probably means the upcoming Windows 11 22H2 release.

What is new in the June 2022 firmware update for the Surface Pro X?

  • The update improves system performance and general stability.
  • The update improves graphics and Wi-Fi stability.
  • The update enables support for a future Windows OS release.
  • The update resolves the camera settings issue.

Here is a complete list of the new drivers for the Surface Pro X SQ1 and SQ2:

The June 2022 firmware update is available for all Surface Pro X SQ1 and SQ2 configurations with Windows 10 20H1 and newer. Note that there is one known issue with the Eye Contact feature:

Symptom Workaround
There is an issue initiating the Eye Contact feature on the February 28, 2022 update on devices that have taken the Windows 11 update.

To initiate the feature (or turn it off), you must toggle the feature within Settings. You will need to do this each time the Camera is used.

  1. Select Start > Settings > Bluetooth & devices > Camera > Surface Camera Front or Surface Camera Rear.

  2. Toggle the Eye Contact Feature

Microsoft says it is working on fixing the problem in a future update. Luckily, it is not as severe as the bug found in the May 2022 firmware update for the first-gen Surface Go, where users ended up with bricked devices after installing the latest patches.
