May 2021 firmware update is now available for US and European versions of Surface Duo - the only device in the Microsoft Surface family running Android, not Windows 10. The latest update brings regular Android monthly security fixes and general device/UI stability improvements. In addition to that, Microsoft has several specific bug fixes listed in the changelog. Here what is new in May 2021 firmware update for Surface Duo.
A bunch of Surface computers receive May 2021 firmware update
Microsoft continues to roll out May 2021 firmware updates for different Surface models. Following updates for Surface Laptop, Laptop 3, and Laptop 4, the company has released new patches and improvements for a bunch of other computers. This time, May 2021 firmware updates are available for the original Surface Book, Surface Book 3, Surface Laptop Go, Surface Pro 4, and Surface Studio 2.
Surface Pro 4, Surface Laptop 1, 2, and 4 received May firmware update
Microsoft is pushing out the May updates roundup with fresh firmware for Surface Pro 4 and three generations of Surface Laptop. Here what is new in the latest patches for Surface Pro 4, Surface Laptop, Surface Laptop 2, and Surface Laptop 4.
Surface Pro X gets a massive April firmware update
Both first gen and second-gen Surface Pro X has received a humongous April firmware update with tons of improvements. Recently, Microsoft merged updates for Surface Pro X and Surface Pro X with the SQ2 processors. From now on, two ARM-based computers from Microsoft receive new unified firmware together. Despite that, this month's update is not the same for the two devices. Surface Pro X SQ2 gets significantly more patches than the original Surface Pro X. It is quite interesting, though, that Microsoft still mentions both SQ1 and SQ2 models in one of the changelogs.
April firmware update for Surface Duo is now available
Surface Duo, the only non-Windows device under the Surface brand, received the April firmware update. It contains Android security patches and a few quality improvements.
Surface Book 3 and Surface Pro 7 receive tons of improvements in latest firmware updates
Microsoft continues rolling out April 2021 firmware updates for its Surface computers. The company has already released patches and improvements for Surface Pro 6, Surface Studio 2, and Surface Book 2. It's time to update two newer models: Surface Book 3 and Surface Pro 7.
Surface Pro 6 gets a bunch of stability improvements in the latest firmware update
After releasing the April firmware update for Surface Studio 2, Microsoft pushed a similar set of patches for Surface Pro 6. These updates contain several stability and security improvements with no major changes or new features.
Surface Studio 2 gets April firmware update with stability improvements
Shortly after releasing a fresh firmware update for Surface Book 2 this month, Microsoft shipped another batch of patches and improvements. This time, the firmware update is available for the second-gen Surface Studio.
Surface Book 2 gets new drivers and security patches in the latest update
Microsoft issues the April 2021 Surface firmware update with fresh patches for Surface Book 2. Released on April 2, 2021, this update brings new graphics drivers for performance improvements and optimizations, plus several security fixes.
March firmware update for Surface Duo is now available
After having some trouble with consistency in releasing monthly patches and updates for Surface Duo, Microsoft is finally back on track. This time, Surface Duo owners got a fresh update without major delays. The March firmware is now available for unlocked Surface Duo with a build number 2021.207.70. If you own Surface Duo from AT&T, the update will arrive on your device in a couple of weeks. That is because AT&T needs to check and validate the new firmware before giving the green light.
