    New Surface 3 Firmware Update for February 2016

    The following update will be listed as “System Firmware Update – 2/4/2016” when you view your update history.

    When Surface updates are provided via the Windows Update service, they are delivered in stages to Surface customers. As a result, not every Surface will receive the update at the same time, but the update will be delivered to all devices. If you have not received the update then please manually check Windows Update later.

    • Surface UEFI update (v1.51116.78.0) recalibrates touch panel.

    I don't get this


    My Surface 3 was dead for 2 months !!
    Nothing worked except that it booted, beyond that, nothing.

    NOW, after the Surface 3 tablet was powered down for months,
    I pulled it out of storage and it worked perfectly !!!

    The touch screen worked, Windows Update got the firmware updates installed !!!

    Posting this on a Surface 3 using free wifi at a donut shop.
