Microsoft has not updated its Surface keyboard, mouse and stylus accessories for a long time, Surface keyboard and mouse was originally designed for Surface Studio, using the classic “platinum” color scheme of modern design, but since its first release in 2016. There have been no updates.
It looks like Microsoft will be updating these products this year, as official renders of them have appeared in a recent update to the Surface app for Windows, and these new accessories could be available this fall along with the upcoming Surface Studio 3!
The renders show that the Surface keyboard looks to have the most obvious design changes of the three, with new icons on its function keys that match the smooth icons of Windows 11, a new Windows 11 Start Button Logo, and a new dedicated emoji key and gadget keys.
The new Surface mouse appears to be identical to the old model except for the color, while the new Surface Pen brings back the old pen clip design found in the first generation of Surface pens.
While there are no particular changes to the appearance of the above products, this reinforces the rumors that Microsoft is planning to launch a new Surface Studio 3 this fall, and these accessories are expected to be included in the Surface Studio 3 box.
Microsoft is expected to hold a Surface event in the next few weeks and is expected to release the new Surface Pro, Surface Laptop and Surface Studio.
