Updating standalone app with new sdk

With new SDK 28 update (from 27) should I make new release or just update default channel ?

hi @methos2018 - Before the old SDK update, your standalone binary would have ran a bundle built with SDK versions we supported at the time (ie) 20-27. With the new SDK update, if you build a standalone app now, it will run SDK versions we support now (ie) 21-28.

Let’s say you build old standalone app A, and new standalone app B that all pull from the same channel. If you publish subsequent javascript experiences with SDK 28, only B will pick up these updates. But if you publish a subsequent JS experience with SDK 27, both A and B will use it to update.

More details: https://docs.expo.io/versions/v28.0.0/distribution/advanced-release-channels#what-version-of-the-app-will-my

tldr; i’d recommend publishing under different channels when you update SDK’s to minimize unwanted side effects

So, for support SDK 28 I need to build new bundle, right ?

And even I update to SDK 28 on local version, I loose default channel ?

And for the version 29 will be the same ?
