Microsoft has released a new firmware update for Surface Laptop Studio and Surface Book 3 devices. The May 2022 firmware update brings some new changes to the devices to alleviate the overall user experience.
The May 2022 firmware update adds the Dynamic Refresh rate support for Windows 11-powered Surface Laptop Studio alongside improving the touch experience. The update also improves graphics stability, performance and stability of the Surface Dock and Pen.
The May 2022 firmware update is available for Laptop Studio devices that are running the Windows 10 October 2020 Update, Version 20H2, or greater. If you haven’t got the update, make sure you’re running a supported version of Windows.
Meanwhile, Surface Book 3 owners aren’t getting any new features with the latest May 2022 firmware update. Instead, it fixes security vulnerabilities and improves system stability. Some Surface Book 3 users were unable to boot to Windows 11 after installing the February 2022 firmware update, and the May 2022 update has fixed the issue.
The May 2022 update is available for Surface Book 3 devices that are running the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, Version 20H1, or greater.
