Check Windows Update to see if you have these updates available. Here’s what Microsoft has to say about firmware updates for your Surface: “When Surface updates are provided via the Windows Update service, they are delivered in stages to Surface customers. As a result, not every Surface will receive the update at the same time, but the update will be delivered to all devices. If you have not received the update, please manually check Windows Update later.”
