    Got it, Installed it - no specific changes I can see.
    I see rumors regarding potential fix regarding a battery problem I am not suffering of (but not confirmed at all at this stage).
    MS Firmware Update not yet updated (but that is quite usual, it is updated after deployment has started).

    Just installed it. I too didn't have the major battery drain like others, I think because I have a battery made by LGC-LGC in my SP3.

    I am hoping that maybe the heat issue will be resolved though. But I think it's W10 that's the cause, because in W8.1 it wasn't an issue.

    Could it be that the new firmware is getting things ready for the New Ink Feature?

    This may require a separate thread but... what new "Ink" feature are you speaking about?

    Are you speaking about the Windows Ink Workspace (I am Insider, this is available in preview versions for a while) - if yes, this does not require any particular firmware - was already working very well.

    Let's continue there then. Note that this thread started even earlier... it would have been good for John Callahan to monitor this forum to be even quicker and give credit to Alexander ;-)

    Probably should continue "here" in the forums, since "there" is an article.
