iPhone 8 frequently disconnects - update your dock firmwareMy iPhone 8 disconnected from my Microsoft Surface Laptop frequently, and reconnected immediately. I tried several cables, re-starting the phone & computer. Nothing helped.
This was especially annoying because I couldn't transfer photos and videos reliably from the phone.
Surface Dock updaterWhat solved it for me (at least for the moment), was to update the surface dock firmware.
I got the latest version from Microsoft here.

Several rounds needed?I ran the updater three times (taking about 5 minutes for each round), following the instructions of the updater each time.
Finally re-running the updater reported:
|Dock firmware fully updated|
