Surface 3 Firmware Update

If you’re the proud owner of a Surface 3, then you might want to head over to Windows Update right now. Microsoft has just released a new firmware update for the Surface 3, and it is now rolling out to Surface 3 devices across the world (via Neowin.)

While the firmware will be listed as “System Firmware Update – 8/8/2016,” there is no official Microsoft post to describe what changes the firmware update brings to the Surface 3. The last Microsoft post on the Surface 3 firmware updates came in June when updates improved the mobile network broadband network stability. Nonetheless, we will be here to report if and when a changelog for the firmware update is released. Until then, you can follow these steps to get the Surface 3 firmware update:

  1. Go to Start Windows logo, and select Settings > Update & security > Windows Update
  2. Select Check for updates. Install any available update.
  3. Select Restat now if prompted.

Once you have the latest firmware update installed, please drop us a comment below. We would love to hear if you noticed anything new, or if the firmware update delivered any fixes and improvements to the Surface 3 experience.
