Microsoft rolled out the first of what are expected to be monthly updates for Surface Duo today. This update is expected to include Android’s October security patch, along with usability improvements. It’s likely we’ll see some of the bigger bugs still present with the Surface Duo squashed with this update as well.
This is also the first update to arrive since the day-one update Microsoft’s provided on the day Surface Duo launched in September. It comes in at 113MB in size.
To check for the update, use the following steps:
- Connect to a Wi-Fi network.
- Select Settings on your Surface Duo’s home screen.
- Select System.
- Select System Update.
- Select Check for update.
- Select Restart now.
There are no release notes available at the moment, but we’ll update this post with the granular details once they are available.
Surface Duo is available now starting at $1,400.
