To get the major release upgrade date for your instance, go to Trust Status, search for your instance, and click the maintenance tab.

How: To apply this update, from Setup, in the Quick Find box, enter Release Updates, and select Release Updates. Then select this Release Update.

Why: This update fixes known bugs by improving internal systems that define and cache org schema, including standard objects, custom objects, and their fields. The documented behavior of your org’s schema remains unchanged. The update fixes bugs where the documentation doesn’t match the known behavior. This update also resolves rare, intermittent cases where undocumented object types are visible in Apex describe result methods or where version-specific schema details are improperly reused.
