Following the announcement of updates to the PostgreSQL database by the open source community, AWS has updated Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition to support PostgreSQL versions 13.5, 12.9, 11.14, and 10.19 in commercial and AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. These releases contain bug fixes and improvements by the PostgreSQL community. 

You can initiate a minor version upgrade manually by modifying your DB cluster. You can enable the “Auto minor version upgrade” option when creating or modifying a DB cluster. 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. It provides up to three times better performance than the typical PostgreSQL database, together with increased scalability, durability, and security.
