Following the announcement of updates in MySQL database versions 5.6 , 5.7, and 8.0, we have updated Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for MySQL to support MySQL minor versions 5.6.51, 5.7.33, and 8.0.23. We recommend that customers upgrade to any of the latest minor versions to fix known security vulnerabilities in prior versions of MySQL, and to benefit from the numerous bug fixes, performance improvements, and new functionality added by the MySQL community. Learn more about upgrading your database instances in the Amazon RDS User Guide, including automatic minor version upgrades.

Amazon RDS for MySQL makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale MySQL deployments in the cloud. See Amazon RDS for MySQL Pricing for pricing details and regional availability. Create or update a fully managed Amazon RDS database in the Amazon RDS Management Console.
