Microsoft Surface Pro 2 update scrapped amid issues

Microsoft has confirmed it has pulled its latest Surface Pro 2 update amid reports that the software patch has caused a number of issues with the Windows 8 tablet.

With many early adopters of the company’s latest high-end tablet offering reporting severe battery drain issues following the installation of the latest Surface Pro 2 update, others have claimed that the software patch has caused more widespread hardware failures including boot and sleep issues.

Making the announcement via the company’s official user forums, a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that the Surface Pro 2 update was being pulled “to ensure the best experience for our customers.”

They stated: “To ensure the best experience for our customers during the holiday season, we have taken steps to remove the update for Surface Pro 2 that was previously published through Windows Update on December 10th, 2013.”

The official company representative added: “We are working to release an alternative update package after the holidays.”

Although new Surface Pro 2 owners will be saved from the hardware depleting update, those who have already downloaded the patch remain unimpressed by Microsoft’s latest move.

In one of many angry comments, one Surface Pro 2 owner, known as L.Sobrado, stated: “What about everybody who got messed up? Can you guys roll this thing back? My surface no longer charges to 100 per cent, it refuses to even try.”
