Amazon RDS now includes enhancements to the Auto Minor Version Upgrade feature for Amazon RDS database instances. Auto Minor Version Upgrade is a feature that you can enable to have your database automatically upgraded when a new minor database engine version is available.

You can now easily see when a minor version upgrade is scheduled to be applied to your database instance in the AWS Console or through the DescribePendingMaintenanceActions API. You can also choose to apply an available minor version upgrade immediately with a few clicks or via the ApplyPendingMaintenanceAction API. 

These enhancements are available for the MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, and PostgreSQL database instances in all AWS Regions. 

For more information refer to Upgrading a DB Instance Engine Version in the Amazon RDS User Guide.
