      The current PHP Versions are 5.3 / 5.5 / 5.6 / 7.0 / 7.1 / 7.2 / 7.3 / 7.4. 

Important: Though 7.4 is the most updated PHP version, ensure that your theme and plugins support the new version if you update your PHP for WordPress. If you have an issue, you may need to revert back to the prior version of PHP. It would help if you always kept your plugins and themes updated.
