According to the company’s documentation, Surface devices usually have four years of firmware and driver support from the date it was initially released (not from the date you purchased the device). However, sometimes, the support will continue beyond four years, but if this was the case, Microsoft will communicate a new end of service in advance. For example, in the case of the Surface Pro 7, the support begins on October 22, 2019, and it ends four years later, on October 22, 2023. Surface Pro X starts on November 5, 2019, and ends on November 5, 2023, and Surface Laptop Go starts on October 13, 2020, and ends on October 13, 2024.
