Now, Microsoft Support team has confirmed that a new firmware update is coming to Surface Pro 2 owners on Jan 14th.

“Just got off a call with Surface support team and they confirmed that the new firmware will be released January 14th. Interesting the support team have been told by Microsoft that the botched December firmware only affected 3 in 1000 devices, needless to say I nearly fell off my chair when they said that!”

  • Improved system stability, including when minimizing full screen games.
  • Updated Wi-Fi driver for improved wireless display and connectivity with wireless access points.
  • Improved Surface Cover interaction including power-saving sleep functionality.
