The November 2021 update roundup for Surface devices continues with the original Surface Duo and AMD-based Surface Laptop joining the party. Here is what is new in the November 2021 update for the first-gen dual-screen smartphone from Microsoft and the fourth-gen Surface Laptop with AMD CPUs.
What is new in the November 2021 firmware update for Surface Duo?
As it was with the last six updates, the November 2021 firmware patch for the first-gen Surface Duo brings only general Android security fixes. Here are the version numbers for Surface Duo in North America, AT&T-locked devices, and Europe:
- North America: 2021.1019.24;
- AT&T: 2021.1019.25;
- Europe: 2021.1019.26;
The update requires a puny 42MB of free space, which is no wonder considering the changelog contains only one thing:
- The update addresses scenarios outlined in the Android Security Bulletin – November 2021.
Microsoft says Android 11 for the original Surface Duo should arrive "before the end of this year," which means Microsoft has a little more than a month to deliver its promise.
It is worth mentioning that the second-gen Surface Duo is yet to receive its November 2021 firmware update.
What is new in the November 2021 firmware update for Surface Laptop 4 (AMD)?
AMD-based Surface Laptop 4 (both 13-inch and 15-inch configurations) received its first firmware update since its release at the beginning of this year. Here is what is new.
- The update improves stability and device reliability.
- The update improves graphic stability and performance.
- The update addresses critical vulnerabilities and improves system stability.
- The update improves Surface Dock 2 connection stability and interop scenarios.
