Updating mysql version
This level of control helps you maintain compatibility with specific database versions and test new versions with your application before deploying in production.
When you are ready, you can perform version upgrades at the times that best fit your schedule.
For more information on OS updates, see Updating the Operating System for a DB Instance or DB Cluster. MTYPE = 6); Minor version upgrades only occur automatically if a minor upgrade replaces an unsafe version, such as a minor upgrade that contains bug fixes for a previous version.

Amazon RDS supports the following in-place upgrades for major versions of the My SQL database engine: Note You can only create My SQL version 5.7 DB instances with latest-generation and current-generation DB instance classes, in addition to the db.m3 previous-generation DB instance class.
If you want to upgrade a My SQL version 5.6 DB instance running on a previous-generation DB instance class (other than db.m3) to a My SQL version 5.7 DB instance, you must first modify the DB instance to use a latest-generation or current-generation DB instance class.
The second DB snapshot is taken when the upgrade completes.
The forced conversion will occur for any DB instances that are running a version prior to My SQL version 5.6.4, and also any DB instances that were upgraded from a version prior to My SQL version 5.6.4 to a version other than 5.7.
After the DB instance has been modified to use a latest-generation or current-generation DB instance class, you can then modify the DB instance to use the My SQL version 5.7 database engine.
For information on Amazon RDS DB instance classes, see DB Instance Class.
There are two kinds of upgrades: major version upgrades and minor version upgrades.
Amazon RDS takes two DB snapshots during the upgrade process.
