I see that EntityDefinitionUpdateManager::applyUpdates() has been removed.

Every time I add a new field to a .yml file or I add a new node.type.yml to the configuration directory in a module I am developing, I reinstall the module to see newly added fields.

Introduction to update API for Drupal 8 shows an example where hook_update_N() reads .yml files one by one. It would be very inefficient 100 and more .yml files.

I found another packet that allows you to use applyUpdate() method but it corrupts the other configuration objects.

I also tried with drush config:import --source=module/config/install, but it corrupts other configuration objects.

Is there a way to update entities using .yml files?
