Microsoft issues revised Surface Pro 2 update to fix problems caused by December

After several users of Microsoft's Surface Pro 2 tablet complained that the company's last-month-issued firmware update led to a number of issues, including installation and battery problems, a revised update is now being released by the company.

The re-release of the Surface Pro 2 update by Microsoft comes after widespread criticism by the tablet's users that the December 2013 update caused failed installation due to a BitLocker device encryption error, as well as serious battery-life issues, among a horde of other problems.

The backlash which Microsoft received from the Surface Pro 2 users for the December update had actually forced the company to pull down the update to investigate the issues; and announce its decision to withdraw it from the market.

According to reports, Microsoft's out-of-band revised firmware update for the Surface Pro 2 tablet will replace the current version released in December. The company will be rolling out the revised update on a few hundred Surface Pro 2 tablets at a time.

As a result of the gradual roll out of the revised Surface Pro 2 update by Microsoft, the owners of the tablet will likely get the update from between now and next week. The revised update will resolve the booting and battery issues which were caused by the December update.
