Microsoft to update its Surface and Pro tablets today

Owners of Microsoft Surface 2, Surface Pro, and Surface 2 Pro tablets should be receiving firmware updates today. What's on the menu? First, all three of them will be made to work with the new $200 Surface Power Cover accessory, which went up for pre-order yesterday. Also, the trio will receive improved multi-touch support when using the Touch and Type Covers' touch-pads.

As for each tablet's respective updates, the Surface 2 will respond better to being powered up from sleep mode. It will also have undisclosed stability and experience improvements. The Surface Pro and Pro 2 will have some wireless connectivity issues resolved, as well as better Miracast support. The Surface Pro 2 alone will receive the option of daisy chaining monitors through DisplayPort 1.2, as well as improved BitLocker usage - you will be able to input your PIN from the Surface cover.
