Microsoft pushes firmware updates to all its supported Surface devices to improve the hardware and fix bugs. The latest devices that have started receiving the latest June 2023 firmware updates are Surface Pro 8, 7 Plus, Surface Pro 6, and Pro 5. The latest firmware updates bring no new features, as you’d expect. However, they bring a couple of fixes and improvements for all the devices.

For Surface Pro 8 devices, the June 2023 firmware improves graphics stability and resolves graphics display issues. It also improves pen and touch stability issues. The Surface Pro 7 Plus owners are also getting similar graphics improvements and fixes besides Wi-Fi stability improvements. To get the update, Surface Pro 8 and 7 Plus owners need to run Windows 10 October 2020 Update, Version 20H2, or greater.

Meanwhile, Surface Pro 6 and Pro 5 owners are getting fixes for external display issues and fixes for potential security vulnerabilities. If you own any of the devices, you will need to run Windows 10 May 2020 Update, version 20H1 or greater, on your devices to get the June 2023 firmware update. The latest firmware version for Surface Pro 6 and 5 has no new features.

It is worth pointing out that these firmware updates are rolling out in a phased manner, meaning you may or may not get the update today. If you are not getting it even after meeting the software requirement, you should wait until it becomes available for your device. To install the latest firmware update on your Surface device, open the Settings app, click Windows Update, and then click Check for updates. You will need to restart your device to complete the installation process.
