Microsoft has rolled out a new update for its last-generation gaming console Xbox 360, launched in 2005. It was last updated in March 2016.

“There are no specific details about what it does, other than bringing ‘minor bug fixes and improvements’,” Techspot reported on Monday.

The gaming console in 2016 was updated with similar bug-fixing and improvement oriented amendments in its software, a month before Microsoft announced it was ceasing production of new Xbox 360s.

The solution comes as a relief to the Surface Pro owners because the inaccuracy of the “Surface Pen” got treated by a simple software fix instead of involving unit replacements.

“Affected users have confirmed pen strokes are now fully accurate when resting a hand on the Surface Pro screen,” the report added.
