Surface Pro October 2013 Updates

Surface Pro just got an out of cycle update before the 8.1 release. Update notes include blurb to be sure and update before going to version 8.1. Well, that train has already left the station. I applied the update yesterday (10/07) and the only thing that found was the Graphics Driver was downgraded from 10.18.10.3282 to .3262. I have some details below on the specific devices that seemed to be affected with this update.

You can get the details on the Surface Pro page here.

  1. Windows 8.0 updates:
  2. No additional product updates were released for Surface Pro running Windows 8.0.
  3. Windows 8.1 Preview updates:
  4. All existing Windows 8.0 drivers and firmware were migrated to Windows 8.1.
  5. Multiple updates that take advantage of improvements in Windows 8.1 including:
    1. Improved Wi-Fi.
    2. Optimizations for using Type Cover 2 or Surface Touch Cover 2.

These are the devices in Device Manager that I noted changed after applying this update.
