What to do when newer versions of AppStudio is published

We are using AppStudio to create native apps for both Android and iOS. It is quite straight forward when creating apps using a template, i.e. the "MapViewer" template, as-is. We are creating apps by using a template and then customizing the source code to fit specific needs.

And it is here we are facing an issue, when a new version of the runtime and/or framework is published and we want (or must) upgrade to the latest versions. It is a slow-going and manual process to "upgrade" our existing code. We find it "easier" (but still problematic) to just create a new app using the latest version of the template and then copy-paste our own source code from the old project into the new one. If we are not very careful the new app is not working because something has changed in the runtime.

 

So, my question is this: Do some kind of "upgrade"-tool exist for this kind of process, and if not what is the best practice for going from and older version to a new one?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
