Microsoft announced the Surface Pro 6 hybrid and Surface Laptop 2 clamshell with new Intel chips and a new matte black colour option. Both devices are updates to last year's models and are available to preorder from 2 October. It also announced the Surface Studio 2 all-in-one PC, an update to the Surface Studio, which comes with an improved display. It, too, is available to preorder from 2 October.
Last, for hardware, it announced all-new Surface Headphones with noise cancelling tech and support for voice commands. These will launch around the holidays. The final major announcement was the launch of the next major update to Windows 10, called the October 2018 Update. It is rolling out now, but won't get a broad roll out until 9 October, after which it'll take a while before reaching all Windows 10 users.
The company also debuted Surface All Access. This is a new payment option that, for a monthly fee, will net you a Surface device and access to Office 365. Pricing starts at $25 per month but depends on the hardware you want (Surface Go, Book 2, Pro, Laptop, or Studio). Most of the bundles aren’t available until 16 October, when Microsoft’s new hardware launches, so you'll be getting the newest versions then.
