Microsoft begins to roll out of a new firmware for its Surface Book laptop. The November 2016 firmware release is a minor update that improves stability for Surface UEFI, Nvidia GeForce GPU driver, and intel’s Precise Touch Device.

According to the official changelog, the Precise Touch Device driver update, which deals with touch, includes an update that reduces false touch events when the device is closed.

Then the Nvidia driver and Surface UEFI only improves system stability.

The new November 2016 firmware update for Surface Book should download and install automatically. However, if you have not received the update on your Surface, then manually check by going to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update and try manually forcing the download.

The new update comes only days after the company issued a new firmware update that permanently addresses the battery issue on Surface Pro 3 devices that caused battery capacity not being accurately reported to the operating system.
