According to Windows Central, an update is rolling out for the Surface Duo that weighs in at 137MB. The update will include the November 5th Android security patch. While the update for the unlocked variant of the phone has started rolling out, carrier-locked models will receive it in a few days. Besides the security update, there will be some other improvements made to the device along with the extermination of some bugs. The update will refine some of the image quality of the 11MP camera. It also will improve the moving and dismissing of apps when they are spanned across the two screens.

The update also improves touch stability and device stability.
