Hey there Hugo_V.


That is a great question. The January update, which will be available later today, includes a few improvements for Surface with Windows RT.  This update provides System Firmware (UEFI) improvements including:

  • Improvements to audio playback when in Connected Standby
  • Additional capabilities for handling firmware updates during low battery situations. 


I hope this is helpful, please let me know if you have any further questions


To check for updates:

  1. Open PC Settings, by swiping in from right edge (or, if using a mouse, point to upper-right corner of screen)
  2. Tap or click Settings
  3. Tap or click Change PC settings
  4. Under PC settings, tap or click Windows Update
  5. Tap or click Check for Updates
