Why I have a bigger Ionic version than the official releases?

When I run this command

ionic version
I got 6.12.4

However, the latest version is 5.6.4 as mentioned on the official release pages:

You are messing up the Versions. What you get with Version 6 is the Ionic CLI :blush:


how to know what ionic version I have?

Run the ionic info CLI command.

Here’s my app’s result:
Ionic CLI : 6.13.1
Ionic Framework : @ionic/react 5.5.2

The Ionic CLI will have a separate version than Framework since it’s a different tool. For Ionic Framework, you’ll see @ionic/angular, @ionic/react, or @ionic/vue and the version number.
