Can OTA updates not happen if Expo SDK was updated?

  1. SDK Version: 44
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): iOS
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.

I updated my app from SDK 40 to SDK 44. Now, the devices with my app currently installed cannot receive updates to the newest version with SDK 44. Will I need to resubmit my app to the App Store due to me upgrading the SDK so much?


Hi @erphovi

Yes, that’s right. The Expo SDK includes native code and the JavaScript for one version of the SDK is in general not compatible with the native code from a different version of the SDK.

See this: What version of the app will my users get?

If you’re using EAS Build, see the following too: Binary compatibility and runtime versions
