Do SDK updates get received to installed apps with OTA updates?

Please provide the following:

  1. 35.0.0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android

We are still on SDK 34 but want to upgrade to 35 because it’s believed that will resolve the issue with some of our clients’ apps reverting back to older versions. We ejected and exported an apk from Android Studio, which we then install directly on the Android tablets that we provide to customers.

My question is, if we upgrade to SDK35 and run expo publish, will the OTA updates take care of the SDK upgrade or do we need to generate another apk from Android Studio and re-install on all of the devices. Ultimately, we just want the reverting of apps to older versions to cease.

you can read about the limitations of ota updates here:

basically if native code needs to change then it can’t be updated over the air. so, you can’t update to a new sdk version with an over the air update, because that involves new native code.
