[openssl-users] Updating TLS1.1 to TLS1.2

I am looking at (query about) updating a TLS 1.1 solution based on OpenSSL 1.0.1b to TLS 1.2. I understand the latest OpenSSL 1.0.2 supports TLS 1.2. At first look I believe if we replace the OpenSSL 1.0.1 with OpenSSL 1.0.2 it should automatically update the TLS to 1.2 versions. That is there should not be any need to do any code changes in application as there is no major changes in API between OpenSSL version 1.0.1 and 1.0.2.
Can anyone please comment on my above understanding? I am new at OpenSSL and do not have hands-on experience on using OpenSSL for TLS hence looking for comments to understand what the risks in such update.
