Microsoft commits to 6 years of firmware updates for new and some older Surface PCs

  • Microsoft has extended the amount of time it promises to support new Surface PCs with firmware updates.
  • Originally, Surface PCs only received four years of firmware updates.
  • Now, Surface PCs shipped after January 1, 2021 will receive firmware updates for six years.

This is great news!

I guess Apple’s increasing market share has shamed Google and Microsoft into at least promising longer support lifetimes for hardware.
