Surface and the future with Windows 11

  • Staff
Yesterday, our colleagues and friends on the Windows team took the digital stage to announce what’s next for Windows. And we, at Surface, couldn’t be more excited. Every new version of Windows has sparked innovation across the ecosystem, and Windows 11 will as well. From its new simplified look and feel, to its incredible new capabilities, Windows 11 will be a platform for innovations that help people to connect, create, and play.

From the beginning, we created Surface to be the device where the best of Microsoft comes together, powered by Windows. Over time, we’ve built a family of original hardware designs that bring powerful software experiences to life and allow people to be their creative and productive best, delivering against our company mission to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more. From collaboration in Microsoft Teams, to creation in Microsoft 365, to entertainment apps and gaming through Xbox Game Pass, Surface offers an assortment of powerful, lightweight, long lasting and versatile device options to deliver a premium experience across them all. With Windows, our family of devices is built for what you need today and flexible for what comes next with features like vibrant 3:2 PixelSense touchscreen displays, ink, touch and voice input, full size keyboards and trackpads, best-in-class HD cameras, Omnisonic speakers, and Studio Mics. As Windows leaps forward, Surface will too with new innovations and experiences we can’t wait to share later this year.

Here’s a quick look at some of the ways Windows 11 will come to life on Surface Pro X.


If you have been considering a Surface, there’s no need to wait. Check out Surface.com to choose the device best suited for you and learn which will be ready for a free upgrade to Windows 11 when it’s available. If you have a Surface today and share our excitement for Windows 11, you can visit Windows.com to download the PC Health Check app and see if your device meets the requirements for a free upgrade beginning this holiday.[1] For fans who want to experience Windows 11 early, an early build will be available starting next week through the Windows Insider Program.

At Surface, we’re inspired by the future with Windows 11, the Windows that brings you closer to what you love. We can’t want to see how our Surface customers embrace it.

[1] Upgrade rollout plan is being finalized and is scheduled to begin late in 2021 and continue into 2022. Specific timing will vary by device. Certain features require specific hardware, see Windows 11 Specifications - Microsoft.

A big disappointment for me my Surface Pro 4 i7 passes all requirements needed to Update to W11 apart from the CPU....this being a so called top of the range model.
What an absolute choker.
