Microsoft has today released new firmware updates for the newest Surface Pro Windows 10 device. The focus of the new update appears to be on addressing the security vulnerabilities and improving the performance of the system. The new firmware update is available for both non-LTE and LTE devices.

The Surface LTE is also receiving the same fixes and improvements. The changelog refers to a bug in Microsoft Edge browser that has been already fixed.
While Microsoft continues work on Meltdown and Spectre mitigations for third-party Windows devices, all Surface devices last month received updates to mitigate the vulnerabilities aimed at Windows users.
Microsoft recently launched the Surface Pro LTE version for businesses and consumers. Microsoft has also started selling the LTE version of Surface Pro as “Commercial Microsoft Surface Pro with LTE.” The newest Surface Pro available in Intel Core i5 version with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage is sold for $1,149 which is said to be the most affordable model. Microsoft is also selling the device with Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM and 256GB storage for $1,449.
The Surface Pro Signature Type Cover and Surface Pen are sold separately. No accessories are included in the box. Microsoft is targeting the business market with Surface Pro LTE, as a result, the stock of this Windows 10 device is limited for the time being, but you can always purchase the non-LTE version as it offers almost same features.
The excellent hardware and regular software updates are helping Microsoft Surface brand. A report recently claimed that the Surface lineup with Windows 10 is more successful than the Apple’s devices. The businesses actually prefer Surface hardware instead of MacBooks and iPads as it runs Windows 10 operating system.
