Getting the max date with Eloquent is executed by simply using the max() operator to get the maximum date time stamp in any given data table. The following example assumes the date column we are looking at is named created_at, but replace it with your own if needs be.
$lastRecordDate = Product::all('created_at')->max('created_at')->toArray(); dd($lastRecordDate);
Whilst this Eloquent query gets the maximum date available in the table, it actually gives us more information in the output, another magic gem in Laravel.
If you want to print the date time, it would be a case of the following line of code
echo $lastRecordDate["formatted"]; // outputs 2020-11-21 15:07:00
Hope this helps!
