Microsoft is today releasing a new firmware update for the Surface Pro 3. The last update for the Surface Pro 3 was released back in April, in case you’re wondering. The latest update, which is possibly the “July Firmware Update” most likely brings some improvements for the battery life of the device. Recently, a lot of Surface Pro 3 users started reporting about the sudden degradation of the Surface Pro 3’s battery life, which is hopefully fixed with the latest update. The changelog states:
Surface Pro System Aggregator Firmware
- v3.9.850.0 increases battery life during sleep mode and improves keyboard stability.
Surface Pro UEFI
- v3.11.1450.0 improves system sleep and hibernation behavior when battery level is low.
Surface Fingerprint Sensor
