I'm currently able to build and run my game just fine using API 25, but all the documentation and and the lint tool suggest going to API 26+.  When I install I get the INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK ...  Requires newer sdk version #27 (current version is #25) error.  It appears my device is up to date (333700.3780.0) but when I check the API version on the device(using adb shell getprop ro.build.version.sdk) it states 25.  Doing this to all our devices gives the same result. 

I was wondering, are we missing something?

    Same here, even my quest is up to the latest version of software, the getprop still gives me a API level 25. Also I had several app failed to run after deployed to the quest, because in unity player settings I gave them API levels higher than 25. I think maybe oculus is updating the OS / runtime, but not updating the ground level android it is running on?
