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
