Each month Microsoft have been releasing firmware updates for its Surface devices and this month it’s just Surface Pro 3 owners that get the updates. The Surface Pro 3 gets a UEFI update that improves system stability including WiFi. The controller firmware has been updated and fixes the issue with a thermostat icon being displayed when the tablet reboots. There is also improved reliability with the Surface cover, Surface Integration driver update that improves Wi-Fi stability and there is a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth driver update that improves the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth reliability which seems something of a theme to this update. Wi-Fi issues have been causing new Surface Pro 3 owners a bit of a headache and this isn’t the first update to try and address that issues.
