Do we Change UI5 version after S/4HANA Upgrade ?

It's an ideal situation when your company wants to upgrade your S/4 version from old to new/latest.

For my scenario : We have upgraded our system from 1709 to 2021 version. So our UI5 library version has been upgraded from 1.71.11 to 1.96.7 .We are now on SAP_UI - SAPK-75604INSAPUI.

We have more than 40 custom UI5 apps or Fiori-like apps based on Fiori elements. The app versions which were deployed before was as per system version 1.71.11.

Now the system UI5 version has been changed to 1.96.7. Do I need to change the version of each app manually in webide and re-deploy to my frontend to match the System UI which is 1.96 or I can leave them as it is.

There are no issues in my custom apps as of now. But as per recommendation there might be many libraries which may be deprecated or upgraded.

1. How do you guys deal with this situation ?

2. Is there any automated tool to change the UI5 version for each custom apps ?

3. I have seen some old blogs(dated 2015) but seems they are not valid anymore after newer releases of S/4HANA

PS : I know how to change the ui5 version in webide. Just asking if it is required to change everytime we upgrade to latest ui5 version. Is this a normal practice in every project ?
