Sitecore Managed Cloud - Azure App Service upgrade to .NET Framework 4.7.2

Sitecore Cloud Operations team brings to your notice the below Planned Azure App services upgrade:

Affected Sitecore Cloud Service: Sitecore Managed Cloud (Any Topology).

Maintenance Upgrade Summary: 

We have received notifications from Microsoft that they will be rolling out .NET 4.7.2 across all Azure App Service instances in September, 2018, this is not an optional rollout. 
The Azure app service apps for the Sitecore Managed cloud environments will be upgraded to the .NET Framework 4.7.2 update.
Since the release is backwards compatible any existing Sitecore instances should be free from issues. 
We have reviewed the Release Notes - there are no breaking changes for applications targeting previous versions (4.5, 4.6, 4.7.1) and since Sitecore explicitly includes target framework in the httpRuntime/targetFramework attribute, and is compiled for previous versions of .NET Framework, there shouldn’t be any change to our services. 

Expected impact on customers: 

As per Azure , there should not be any service interruptions associated with this update for the various Sitecore Managed Cloud environments.
However, this status update will serve as a heads up notification , since the upgrade will be performed on the Sitecore Managed Cloud Azure App Services.

When ? :  Update scheduled throughout the month of SEP-2018.
