Microsoft last week released an update that will improve the functionality of two of their tablet devices, the Microsoft Surface 2 and the Microsoft Surface 2 Pro. The update released by Microsoft will see an improvement to multiple different specifications and will therefore hope to address several criticism levied at the Microsoft devices.
The first significant improvement that the firmware update provides is in an increase to the Surface 2 battery life. This is a welcome update to many Microsoft Surface 2 users because the battery life on the Microsoft Surface 2 Pro outperformed the previous model. Thus the update is used to rectify the disparity between the two devices. Furthermore, the increased battery life is also coupled with an improvement to the audio that will include the ability to switch to speaker playback after the headset has been disconnected from the device.
The Second string of improvements that Microsoft has implemented is a minor enhancement to the camera with a new LifeCam driver. The update to the camera will improve usability for the Microsoft Surface 2 users. This update to the camera is also combined with an upgrade to the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth performance of the Surface 2 that should enhance Miracast.
Do you own a Microsoft Surface 2 or Microsoft Surface 2 Pro? Have you noticed a significant improvement to your device because of Microsoft update? Has the battery life on your device seen a significant improvement?
