Microsoft had promised this function several times for the ARM-controlled Pro X tablet and has now started it as an update.
Additional updates for the Surface Pro X address Windows Hello, battery management, and performance issues related to Edge. The updates for the Surface Book 2 do not bring anything new. The updates serve to improve and fix errors. According to the support, all new updates are available for devices on which at least the Windows 10 May 2019 update, version 1903, or higher is running. The new firmware brings bug fixes and general stability improvements, as well as security-relevant changes and, is therefore recommended to all users.
Little details about the update content
However, as is so often the case, details of the changes are only given superficially in the support documents and the update history; only brief information is available. There are currently no known problems. Surface updates are released in stages – so not every Surface will get the update at the same time, but it will be rolled out to all devices one by one.
