I also have this question.

Right now there isn’t a good way to get new versions of PHP into Local easily. Because the various lightning services have to manually be compiled for all the OSes that Local supports (mac, windows, linux)

Note: A service is what Local calls a bundle of server software and configuration, for example php 7.4.1 or nginx 1.16.0 .
