Surface Pro 3 gets new firmware update with improvements to reliability and battery life
Microsoft has released yesterday a new firmware update for Surface Pro 3 tablets running Windows 10 (via Neowin). While this is a minor update, Microsoft says that it should improve battery life during sleep as well as Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) performance on IPv6.
Here is the complete changelog:
- Surface Pro Embedded Controller Firmware: 188.8.131.52 improves battery life during sleep.
- Surface Pro UEFI: 3.11.2150.0 improves PXE performance on IPv6.
The Surface Pro 3 will celebrate its third anniversary this month, and it’s good to see that Microsoft is still supporting its first 12-inch hybrid tablet. You can install the new firmware on your Surface Pro 3 by checking Windows Update, but the update is also available to download on Microsoft’s Download Center.
