The seventh-generation Surface Pro, the last Surface tablet with the old design, will remain supported until February 28, 2024. After that, Microsoft will stop releasing firmware updates and security patches. However, it’s worth noting that firmware updates are separate from Windows updates, which means your Surface Pro 7 will continue to receive Windows 10 and 11 updates as long as those operating systems are supported.
