TechRadar reports that some owners of Microsoft Surface products are having problems with their devices after they’ve updated to the April Windows update. For example, some of last year’s Surface Pro models are freezing after the update has been installed. The reason for this is apparently because the Intel SSD6 drive is incompatible with the update.

The all-in-one Surface Studio PC is also having issues in some instances, with numerous people on Microsoft’s official Community forums reporting that their device’s mouse and keyboard are disconnecting after the update.

Microsoft has said that it is aware of the issue, and has released the following statement on the forum: “We are currently working on a solution that will be provided in a future Windows Update. Please continue to check for Surface and Windows Updates to ensure that your device has the most current firmware and software available.”

The next big Windows update is...

Microsoft has today showed just how committed it is to its aim to “enable and empower even more Xbox One and Windows 10 gamers across the globe” with the announcement of its new Xbox Adaptive Controller for Xbox and Windows 10 gaming.

Writing in a post on Xbox Wire, head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, said that the Xbox Adaptive Controller was created to address the challenges of gamers with limited mobility “and remove barriers to gaming by being adaptable to more gamers’ needs.”

The new controller was developed by Microsoft in partnership with organisations from all over the world, including The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, SpecialEffect, and Warfighter Engaged. Spencer says that Microsoft also worked closely with gamers with limited mobility.

“Our goal was to make the device as adaptable as possible, so gamers can create a setup that works for them in a way that is plug-and-play, extensible, and...

Microsoft’s chief product officer Panos Panay has taken to the official Windows Blog to announce Surface Hub 2.

“Today’s most effective businesses have a team-based, collaborative culture and place an emphasis on enabling creativity and productivity” said Panoy. “In fact, companies that promote collaborative working are five times as likely to be high-performing.”

“There is a need for a device built for teams and designed for these new environments. To help people collaborate whether they are in the office, at home, or travelling the world. To move beyond just passing along information, to a world where they are collaborating real-time, in an efficient, and intuitive way.”

Panay goes on to say that the Surface Hub 2 is such a device, having been “designed from the ground up to be used by teams – to get people out of their seats, to connect and ideate, regardless of location.”

The “sleeker, more agile and more affordable” Surface Hub...

According to an exclusive report from Bloomberg today, Microsoft is currently working on a range of low-cost Surface tablets that could be launched as soon as the second half of this year.

Bloomberg’s source says that Microsoft is making the move in order to try and compete with Apple’s tablet-market-dominating iPad.

The rumoured new Surface tablet will have a 10-inch screen, as well as rounded edges, similar to those of an iPad. USB-C connectivity will be included for the first time in the Surface line-up. The tablet is expected to be priced competitively at around $400. Microsoft is also said to be planning to launch cheaper versions of the Surface tablet’s keyboard cover, stylus, and mouse, which won’t be bundled with the tablet itself, as is the case with the Surface Pro.

In terms of dimensions, the source says that the tablet will be approximately 20% lighter than the high-end Surface range, and will have roughly 4 hours less...

Windows Central reports that Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 is now available to buy from Microsoft and Best Buy, along with many other retailers worldwide. You can pick one up for a starting price of $1,499 and a high-end price of $3,299.

The new Surface Book shows just how far the Microsoft laptop-tablet hybrid has come in the 2 short years since the first Surface Book was released. The updated version now boasts Intel’s eighth-gen quad-core processors and optional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 or 1060 graphics.

This is also the first Surface model to feature a USB-C port, which is one feature that a lot of users have been wanting for a long time.

The fulcrum hinge has also been improved to make it more durable, and according to Microsoft, the Surface Book 2 has an amazing battery life of up to 17 hours.

Another big change is the fact that you now have two sizes to choose from, with both a 13.5-inch and 15-inch model available.

To celebrate...

PC Mag reports that Microsoft Surface head Panos Panay today announced a new Surface Pro with LTE Advanced at Microsoft’s Future Decoded event at the O2 Arena in London during a keynote speech aimed at “empowering employees with modern devices.”

The long-rumoured Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is aimed primarily at business customers, and will be available in December. It boasts a Cat 9 modem, which makes it “the fastest LTE-enabled laptop in its class,” and has download speeds of up to 450Mbps, which surpasses the 300Mbs achieved by other comparable LTE-enabled laptops with only Cat 6 modems.

Panay also said that the new Surface Pro “delivers global connectivity with support of 20 cellular bands so you can work, study, create or relax uninterrupted.”

Adding that the newly announced device “rounds out” Microsoft’s Surface device line-up, Panay said that “the entire Surface family is built to bring the best of Windows to life,...
