Been checking since last month, still no update for my B150I Gaming Pro AC.
The latest version is v1.9 from May 2017.
MSI is really slow with BIOS updates. Last time they've announced Kaby Lake support on 100-series boards, and I only got an update 3-4 months down the road.

Searched MSI site and forums. English forums= messy kiddy site. German forums= serious and nice :) There a representative said "300 series is addressed, in about 2 weeks 200 series will follow, then 100 series. This is official information".

Hope this saves you guys some time!
