    The touchscreen also seems to work better after the update, which I installed automatically about an hour ago.

    I have tried to download it for more than a week. It never starts and never errors out. It also never downloads anything. I tried multiple browsers and even multiple machines.

    I just purchased a Surface 3 online and awaiting its arrival. I had a question about Firmware and etc updates. Are these delivered through the Windows Update program for this particular device? I'm a pretty computer oriented person and the "support/drivers" for MS website it difficult to find. Esp since they don't typically sell hardware so it's not like a typical Dell/HP/Lenovo/MSI website for drivers and software.

    Same happened to me too. wifi completely tanked, constant connection freezes and had to disconnect/turn on airplane mode and then re-establish connect. Eventually, I had to roll back the wifi drivers. Horrible...not impressed!!

    Are these considered normal Windows updates or are the firmware updates considered driver updates?
    If the firmware updates are categorized as drivers, many organizations will not see them as it is common for them to disable driver category updates through WSUS and get supported drivers through the manufacturer instead.
