The BIOS has little or nothing to do with the OS. It speaks directly the hardware, not Windows.
It only lists Win 8.1, because Win 10 was not a thing in 2012.

However, BIOS updates are not to be done lightly. Unless you're seeing a specific issue that the newer BIOS addresses, I'd consider just leaving it as is.

I can't seem to find information about the changes made in BIOS V1.13 anywhere so I guess I'll just forget about it.
