Migration Apex 5 to 18 and the mobile application development interface does not work?

I recently migrated my oracle apex application 5 to 18, and I don't see the mobile interface.

Before in apex 5, you could find this configuration in the project properties, adding the mobile interface apart from the desktop interface.

And also when creating a new page, you could choose between desktop page or mobile page.

Where do I find that in Apex 18? Or what is the improvement for mobile phones in Apex 18? Or is it not necessary to create pages especially mobile type? In other words, does the mobile recognize it?

Thanks for your help.

    In APEX18 you don't need a separate theme anymore for mobile and desktop.
    All the components that are specifically for mobile (for example list views) have been integrated into the normal universal theme.

    Mobile UI

    APEX 18.1 introduce many new UI components to assist in the creation of mobile applications.  Three new component types, ListView, Column Toggle and Reflow Report, are now components which can be used natively with the Universal Theme and are commonly used in mobile applications.  Additional enhancements have been made to the APEX Universal Theme which are mobile-focused, namely, mobile page headers and footers which will remain consistently displayed on mobile devices, and floating item label templates, which optimize the information presented on a mobile screen.  Lastly, APEX 18.1 also includes declarative support for touch-based dynamic actions, tap and double tap, press, swipe, and pan, supporting the creation of rich and functional mobile applications.

    Additionally there are responsive classes that help to fine tune the presentation on different screen sizes.

    The classes can bee seen on the universal theme app:

    Thank you.
    I'm going to do tests with several examples.
