This month's Patch Tuesday has arrived, and with it (some of) the month's Surface firmware updates. Today, however, only the Surface 2 received firmware updates. Microsoft says we'll see yet another Wi-Fi fix for Surface Pro 3 "in the coming weeks," however.
You may recall that Microsoft last week issued an out-of-band Surface Pro 3 firmware update as well. That update enables apps—like the Surface Hub app—to configure Surface Pen on that device.
Today, only Surface 2 was updated. And it received a ton of fixes as part of an update named "System Firmware Update – 10/14/2014":
Surface 2 UEFI update (v4.22.500) addresses case where the battery drains under the 0% level and will not charge.
