        When developing an app, is automatic update enabled for all releases? Or is it only valid when using phased release?

          Keeping in mind that auto update is user controlled, and the user can choose if for all, or app/by/app, yes, auto update is for all releases of a given app, regardless if the dev has chosen phased release.

           

          Under the dev's control, a phased release only targets selected users that have auto update enabled.

           

          See the docs:

          https://developer.apple.com/app-store/app-updates/

           

          "Phased Release for Automatic Updates

          You can release an app update to an increasing percentage of customers over a seven-day period. Learn more":

           

          "If you choose this option, your version update will be released over a 7-day period to a percentage of your users (selected at random by their Apple ID) on macOS or iOS with automatic updates turned on. Users are not notified that that they are in a phased release of your app."
