Microsoft has released a slew of new firmware updates for its Surface Pro 7 and 7+ devices. The June 2021 firmware updates are dated back to June 23, though this release probably flew under the radar amidst the official Windows 11 announcement last week.

In addition, they also bring enhancements to the pen and touch stability and you can check out the changelog for the same below:

As usual, it’s possible that the June 2021 firmware updates won’t roll out to all Surface devices simultaneously, but you should get them sooner rather than later.
