As reported by The Verge, MSN, and others, Microsoft sent out the following invitation to the media: ‘Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 21, 2023, for a special Microsoft event’. It’s been deemed very likely by tech commenters at large that we will see some new Surface devices unveiled at this event, which could include the Surface Pro 10.

Microsoft Surface Pro release date history

Microsoft usually sets aside the October release window for the Surface devices, including the Surface Pro series. For example, take the most recent release, the Microsoft Surface Pro 9. Microsoft announced it officially on October 12, 2022, at the hardware event. Check out the Surface Pro releases throughout the decade to get a better idea. 

  • Microsoft Surface Pro release date window: February 2013
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 2 release date window: October 2013
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 3 release date window: June 2014
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 4 release date window: October 2015
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 5 release date window: June 2017
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 6 release date window: October 2018 
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 7 release date window: October 2019
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ release date window: January 2021
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 8 release date window: October 2021
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 9 release date window: October 2022

There are a few deviations, but the company mostly follows the October release date trend. Since the Surface Pro 6, the company hasn’t deviated from this particular release schedule. 

Microsoft Surface Pro 10 release window estimate: When could the Microsoft Surface Pro 10 release? 

As you can see from the list above, the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 was released in October 2022 like many before it, and we’re expecting a similar outcome this year for the Microsoft Surface Pro 10 release date.

This would fit in nicely with the confirmed ‘special event’ as mentioned above, taking place on September 21st, as this is when we’ll likely see the device for the first time, with it actually releasing (i.e. hitting the shelves) in October some weeks later. More specifically than this, we cannot say, and even this should be taken with a pinch of salt, although the historical release pattern suggests it is likely.

Microsoft Surface Pro 10 specs (rumored)

The Surface Pro is one of the staple devices of Microsoft. In 2021 the company re-established itself as the best 2-in-1 computer manufacturer with the Microsoft Surface Pro 8. The device saw some significant changes, which made it the best of its class. In 2022, Microsoft largely continued the formula with the Surface Pro 9 and we don’t necessarily expect any major redesigns this time round either, but there could be a new-sized Surface Pro on the cards…

There’s been little in the way of leaks for the specifications of the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 10, but according to an unnamed source of Windowscental, it’s likely to be very much a similar design to the Surface Pro 9 but with an upgraded processor, although we could potentially see an improved keyboard. According to this source, the biggest potential change is the supposed introduction of a new 11-inch Surface Pro to complement the existing 13-inch model, which would be a first.

  • Display: PixelSense Flow Display with 120Hz refresh rate (as per the previous model)
  • Screen Size: 11-inches (rumored) & 13-inches
  • Processor: Intel’s 13th-generation chips (predicted)
  • Misc: Possibly an improved keyboard (rumored)

Is the Microsoft Surface better than the Apple iPad?

Both Microsoft Surface and Apple iPads are exceptional devices, though whereas the iPad admittedly has the edge when it comes to creative use or some pure tablet functionality, the Surface Pro series operate far better as 2-in-1 laptop/tablet devices, giving greater flexibility for standard office/student work and the like.

Microsoft Surface Pro 10 release window FAQs

Is Microsoft Surface better than Lenovo?

Which tablet brand is better really depends on the models you are looking at. Lenovo tablet devices before 2021 couldn’t match the 120Hz refresh rate of the Microsoft Surface 8 onwards, which also had brighter and sharper screens, plus greater color-accuracy, touchpads, and webcams.

The latest Lenovo Tab P11 Pro Gen tablets however have upped the game in terms of premium features, so the two are now more closely matched.

Is Microsoft discontinuing the Surface Pro?

There is absolutely no indication that Microsoft is discontinuing the Surface Pro range. This line of products is one of the most popular and highly rated convertible 2-in-1 laptop/tablets on the market, so it’s likely to have some future in it yet.
