Early adopters of the Surface Pro 3 who’ve been struggling with some hardware- and driver-related bugs can expect more relief soon.
A firmware-and-driver update delivered last week was intended to clear up some known issues with sleep and Wi-Fi connectivity issues, among others.
A separate driver update, due to be delivered on Wednesday, July 16
, will address some of the remaining issues.
In a post on Microsoft’s Surface support forums, a spokesperson said the “second July update for Surface Pro 3 Wi-Fi” should address most (but not all) remaining issues. Collectively, he said, this month’s updates should address the three biggest “limited connectivity” complaints, in which network performance degrades after exiting Connected Standby, after resuming from hibernation, or during active use.
