Today is the May 2016 Patch Tuesday and we fully expect a batch of updates to roll out in a few hours to address security related concerns on Microsoft Windows.

In addition to those updates we should also see new cumulative updates for Windows 10 Current Branch (Build 10586.218), possibly for both mobile and desktop platforms, as any security updates for Windows 10 are delivered via cumulative updates.

One area that updates are already being pushed out over Windows Update are the May updates for the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4.

This batch of driver updates, there does not appear to be any firmware patches this month, seem to be focused on improving the performance of the cameras on the latest generation Surface devices.

The drivers distributed for Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 today are the exact same for each device and include the following updates:

  • Intel Corporation driver update for Intel(R) AVStream Camera 2500

All of those drivers will be version number v30.10586.7035.1976 and according to the update page they improve Windows Hello stability.
