Surface Duo 2 August firmware update changelog
As you may know, these firmware updates are rolled out in stages, which means not all Surface Duo, and Duo 2 devices will be updated at the same time. However, the latest version of the firmware will eventually be delivered to all Surface devices. But before you go ahead and download it, here are three things that you should be careful about:
- Software updates can’t be uninstalled or reverted to an earlier version.
- When you install the latest update, you’ll also get all the previous updates if your Surface doesn’t have them already. Only updates that apply to Surface Duo will be downloaded and installed.
- After the updates are installed, tap Restart now.
If you own a Surface Duo or Duo 2, have you received the update? If yes, you can share your experience in the comments section about what you think about the latest firmware.
