Microsoft usually releases Surface updates in stages, which means not every device receives the update at the same time. After installing new firmware updates, head over to the Start button> Power > Restart to finish the installation process. Do note that firmware updates cannot be uninstalled or reverted back to an earlier version. More details on today's updates for Surface Book 3 are available in this support document; for Surface Pro 7, head over to this link.
