Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 updates bring major improvements

While speculation continues over the release of the
Surface Pro 5, Microsoft has been repairing some problems associated with the touchscreen and performance of its Surface Pen on its current range of Surface devices.

The latest firmware updates have improved the screen responsiveness for the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 and made the pen far more smooth.

It’s been a tricky nine months for the Surface line-up as Microsoft has had to roll out a series of updates bettering overall performance to meet the demand of the high price tag on their tablet-meets-laptop range.

Even though the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 scored well in our reviews, issues have included problems with the display, battery life, and standby mode.

Reddit users using the Microsoft Surface page have made positive comments on the update, with many noticing a sizeable difference with less lag and easier scrolling on Chrome.

Hopefully this news will relieve some of the pressure ahead of the release of the Pro 5 which is rumoured to feature a 4K screen and Intel’s new Kaby Lake processor.
