Is there a new RSS when changing an article's date?

Let's say I have an article titled "latest update goes here". Every once in a while I want to put completely new text in it. Can I just change the article's date to make the RSS treat it like a new article? Otherwise I have to delete it and create a new article for no real reason.

Thanks!

I'm not really sure how RSS files work in the user's side. I know changing the article's date does put a new date in the RSS file on the site's side. The question is whether the user's RSS client thinks it's a new article based on date alone (or maybe it checks for other things too making it a smart check)?
