Node auto-upgrade keeps nodes up-to-date with the latest cluster master version when your master is updated on your behalf. When a new cluster or node pool is created, node auto-upgrade is enabled as default.
We recommend you ensure auto-upgrade is enabled. Automatic node upgrade ensures that when new binaries are released you instantly get a fix with the latest security issues resolved. GKE will automatically ensure that security updates are applied and kept up to date.
