Microsoft Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 firmware updates solve many problems
Microsoftâ€™s first laptop Surface Book introduced in the market a couple of months ago continues to hog limelight. The first convertible laptop from the Cupertino based tech giant is among the best and people would have formed long queues to buy the Surface Book.
The company had introduced around half a dozen very impressive products including Surface Pro 4 and two high-end mobile handsets. All the products passed criticsâ€™ test with impressive numbers.
In the meantime the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book owners are facing numerous issues. Though there are many issues confronting the owners of the two products one issue that has got the biggest attention is erratic power management. A report while talking about the issue says, â€œSome users are reporting that the devices simply don’t go to sleep properly when you close their lids or put them into standby. Instead, they continue to drain power, which could be a nasty surprise if you don’t bring your charger along. That’s a particularly surprising issue for flagship devices in 2015 â€” it’s something that’s mostly been fixed by laptop makers over the past decade. Making things even worse, a Surface engineering manager noted earlier this month that the issue might not be fixed until 2016â€.
Meanwhile the two have got a firmware update recently which got people all hyped up since Microsoft promised to address some of the serious problems that people have been encountering. Nonetheless there are reports that the latest firmware update makes some improvement, but doesnâ€™t solve all the issues confronting the users.
In the meantime Surface Pro 4 has got an important upgrade in the form of Surface Pro 4As. This is a very small one but itâ€™s probably just the beginning. There are reports that another update is on the card. The next big update is reportedly going to address the outdated drivers for the display, the battery and the touchpad. Besides reports suggest that it will also help make it all the more secure.
