Last week Microsoft took the decision to pull their latest firmware update for the Surface Pro 2 tablet. The update itself caused issues on users devices who initially downloaded the update and Microsoft promised a new update “after the holidays”. However, it seems that the update may just be around the corner instead.
For those who don’t know about the issue at hand, the update caused batter issues with the devices that it was loaded on. Users reported that their devices were experiencing extremely low battery times after installing the update.
WinSuperSite’s Paul Thurrott pointed out that such a quick update has come as a surprise because the majority of Microsoft takes time off in December to relax down. This created worry with Surface Pro 2 users who thought that they would be stuck with the bad update until January at least.
Microsoft issued a statement stating that the new firmware update would be pushed through Windows Update as soon as they could:
“To ensure the best experience for our customers, we have taken steps to remove the update for Surface Pro 2 that was previously published through Windows Update on December 10th, 2013, we are working to release an alternative update package as soon as possible.”
