Upgrade Laravel 9.x to Laravel 10.x

The Laravel 10.x Shift automates the upgrade of your Laravel application from Laravel 9.x to Laravel 10.x. Using the Laravel 10.x Shift to automatically upgrade your Laravel application has an estimated time savings of 2 hours.

While Laravel 10.x still receives bug fixes until August 6th, 2024 and security fixes until February 4th, 2025, it is no longer the latest version of Laravel. As such, Shift recommends continuing your upgrade to the latest stable release of Laravel.

Manual Upgrades

There are some upgrades the Laravel 10.x Shift can not perform automatically. When Shift detects these it adds a detailed comment to the Pull Request to guide any additional steps you may need to do manually.

While Shift attempts to detect and automate the updates for popular packages, you may need to update some of your dependencies manually. Always review the changelog for your dependencies for any additional changes.
