    • Surface UEFI update (v103.873.768.0) improves system stability.

    • Surface Management Engine update (v1.0.0.1183) provides touch optimizations.

    • Precise Touch Device driver update (v1.1.0.217) provides touch optimizations.

    • Management Engine Interface driver update (v11.0.0.1172) provides touch optimizations.

    • Surface Touch Servicing ML driver update (v1.0.36.1) provides touch optimizations.

    • Microsoft Surface ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery driver update (v1.2.0.2) ensures correct Surface driver is installed.

    Big fix for flickering screens on the SB and the SP4 as well. I think this was effecting mostly SB users

    Just out of curiosity, anyone have any idea if MS modifies the intel drivers in-house or if they outsource/order the spec from intel?
    Given the issues thus far I'd suspect the latter, but it never hurts to ask...

    All OEMs modify their drivers for their device specific parameters, unless the OEM is using one of Intel Reference Designs.

    With that said, Intel works directly with the Surface Software and Hardware Engineers on their drivers.

    Mods, do people from Microsoft read in here? After todays update, I still have the rather annoying bug that Airplane mode is highlighted, when it is in fact off. Pressing it turns on airplay mode, and it remains highlighted. Pressing it again finally deselects airplane mode and it displays correctly, until next time windows hibernates. It's a superficial bug, but annoying non the less. If not here, where is the best place to raise awareness to Microsoft for this bug.

    I highly doubt it. Try answers.microsoft.com, although I don't know if they are real microsoft people either. You could also use the feedback app within Windows 10.

    Use the Windows Feedback app for things like that. Most likely way Microsoft will get the message. Search for it first though as its likely someone else has already reported it.
