Microsoft now offers many Surface PCs at least six years of firmware updates

The change means that, currently, Surface Pro 7 Plus, Surface Laptop 4, Surface Pro 8, Surface Laptop Studio, Surface Go 3, Surface Pro X Wi-Fi, Surface Laptop SE, Surface Laptop Go 2, Surface Laptop 5, Surface Pro 9, Surface Studio 2 Plus, Surface Go 4, Surface Laptop Go 3, and Surface Laptop Studio 2 will all get at least six years of updates, according to Microsoft’s support page. (There you can see a table with Microsoft’s end-of-service dates for all of its currently supported Surface devices.)

Microsoft’s decision is not as generous as Google’s recent decision to offer Chromebooks released in 2021 or later 10 years of automatic updates. Still, I support any way tech companies can extend the life of their products, so I’m glad Microsoft made this change.
