Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 and 4 get a bunch of firmware updates

Microsoft is releasing new firmware updates for both the Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 4 today, some of its oldest supported devices in the lineup. Indeed, the Pro 3 came out almost four and a half years ago, so it’s certainly notable that it’s still receiving updates.

Here’s what’s new for the Surface Pro 3:

Device Manager Name

Surface UEFI – Firmware

Surface Embedded Controller Firmware – Firmware

Surface Integration – System devices

According to Microsoft’s value indicator chart, these updates improve security with no effect on other categories like reliability, battery life, connectivity, compatibility, and performance.

The Surface Pro 4 got a few more updates than that, also improving security and battery stability.

Marvell AVASTAR Bluetooth Radio Adapter – Bluetooth

Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-AC Network Controller – Network adapters

Surface UEFI – Firmware

Surface Embedded Controller Firmware – Firmware

Surface Integration – System devices

Microsoft did not provide a value indicator chart for the Surface Pro 4 updates, but it should be about the same as the one for the Surface Pro 3.

If you want to download the Surface Pro 3 firmware and drivers bundle, you can find it here. The bundle for the Surface Pro 4 can be found here. Of course, you can always just wait for them to be installed automatically with Windows Update.
