The Surface Book 3 recently received August’s 2022 firmware update, which features the usual stability improvements, and security fixes. The firmware update which was first released on August 3 also comes with improved reliability with Surface Pen 2.

The update should be rolling out to all devices running the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, Version 20H1, or greater. There are a couple of updates listed in the release that Microsoft says will enhance stability and reliability when using Surface Dock 2 and Surface Pen 2. Here’s the complete list as per the firmware update:

This firmware update should be available to users via Windows Update, where you will be required to download it and then restart your device, though these updates are not necessarily available right away for all Surface users.
