    Microsoft issues fix for a Surface Pro firmware glitch


    It's Tuesday January 14, the first Microsoft Patch Tuesday of 2014. As has been the case with most of the recent Patch Tuesdays, Microsoft is patching its Windows 8.X Surface tablets.

    As part of today's patch bundle, Microsoft is issuing a fix to its first-generation Intel-based Surface Pro firmware. The Surface Pro fix will be available "later today" for download from Windows Update. This fix addresses issues users have had with both the Type Cover 2 and Touch Cover 2 when running Windows 8.0 on Surface Pros.

    What about the Surface Pro 2 firmware patch some were expecting to be out today? Microsoft pulled the December Surface Pro 2 update from its download site after a firmware glitch caused a number of those attempting to install the December Surface Pro 2 update to encounter serious battery-life problems. The December update for Surface Pro 2 included a patch that was originally designed to improve Surface Cover interaction including power-saving sleep functionality.

    I've asked Microsoft about the Surface Pro 2 firmware update. I'm hearing from my sources that the fix for that one is still in the works

    I was wondering when the new version of the december firmware was coming. It seems it's still under development. MS better have it right this time and if that mean that it will take a few more days. Well, so be it ;-).
