Surface Go 2 Firmware update

The April 2023 firmware is rolling out in phases, which means that not everyone will get it on the same day. It might take a week or so to become available for everyone. It is important to note that the latest firmware is rolling out to devices running Windows on October 10th, 2020 Update Version 20H2 or greater.

If you have just received it on your Surface Go 2, remember the things listed below.

  • Firmware 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 will be downloaded and installed.
  • After the updates are installed, restart your device to complete the installation process. To restart your device, select the Start button and then select Power Restart.

Microsoft will continue to update all its supported Surface devices with the latest firmware version. However, it will be interesting to see how many more Surface products will get updated with the April 2023 update.
