We’re excited to announce that the Linux - 2021.09 build stack with the new SDK 30 tools & Java 11 support for Gradle and the macOS - 2021.09 which has the latest Xcode 13 for iOS 15 support will be tagged as the Latest build stacks in Appflow from today.
This would automatically update any automation that you have set to “always use the latest build stack”. If you would like to use a different build stack you must manually choose from the build stack dropdown when performing a build or setting up (or editing) the automation. Refer to our docs on Build Stacks in Automations.
Note that, a build stack would be tagged as the Latest, once a new build stack is available in Appflow to help you target the latest Android and iOS releases.Read More

Google Play will start requiring new apps to be published as Android App Bundles (AAB) starting in August 2021. This will replace the APK as the standard publishing format.
Using Appflow? You're already covered. The Native Builds feature automatically creates an APK and an AAB binary for you, and with Deploy to App Stores, an AAB binary can be automatically sent to Google Play as well.
If you haven’t made the switch to app bundles yet, you would likely need to opt-in Play App Signing to be able to publish AABs. To help with the Play App Signing adoption, we’ve put together a guide that walks you through enabling Play App Signing in this article.Read More
