Following the announcement of updates to the PostgreSQL database, we have updated Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility to support PostgreSQL version 13.4, 12.8, 11.13, and 10.18 in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. This release contains bug fixes and improvements done by the PostgreSQL community. As a reminder, Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL 9.6 will reach end of life on January 31, 2022.

You can initiate a minor version upgrade manually by modifying your DB cluster. Or you can enable the “Auto minor version upgrade” option when creating or modifying a DB cluster. Doing so means that your DB cluster is automatically upgraded after Aurora PostgreSQL tests and approves the new version. For more details, see Automatic Minor Version Upgrades for PostgreSQL. Please review the Aurora documentation to learn more.

Amazon Aurora combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. To get started with Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL, take a look at our getting started page.
