Patch Tuesday brings more updates for the Surface RT and Surface Pro

This month’s round of update from Microsoft have brought us a firmware update for the Surface RT. For the past few months Microsoft have been working on fixing the WiFi issues and April’s update seemed to fix the issues for me and it must have for others as May’s update doesn’t include a WiFi patch. What it does include is an updated firmware that enhances the Surface RT’s speaker volume and improves system stability plus a driver pack works with the updated firmware.The update will come down via Windows Update along with the rest of the Windows updates.

For the Surface Pro the updates include a WiFi fix and UEFI update.
