Microsoft has done a good job when it comes to Surface Pro 3 updates. They have rolled out frequent updates to iron out bugs and issues, as well as improve its performance. Starting today, Surface Pro 3 owners will be able to grab the October 28th System Update, which brings plethora of improvements and bug fixes on board. 

It comes with a number of improvements, and fixes WiFi adapter issues, especially in case when the system resumes from sleep, as well as other WiFi-related issues. Furthermore, the update improves system stability, adds a status for future system firmware updates, and more.

Here’s a complete change log as per Microsoft:
