Well, a part of the journey is the end, and the end is here for Surface Go. Today, Microsoft announced that the LTE version of the original Surface Go launched in November 2018 is reaching the end of official support. As a result, the company is no longer providing firmware and driver updates for the device.

The company generally offers support for its devices for four years. That starts to count as soon as the device reaches the market. Worth noting, that this is the end of firmware updates for the Surface Go LTE Edition, but the device can still get Windows updates.

The same goes for patches and new features. One thing to note is that the Surface Go LTE is not eligible for Windows 11. For that reason, it’s limited to Windows 10 upgrades.
