Clear App Data on expo upon app update

Is there any way on clearing the app data like on the settings when the app is updated?

I don’t think there is a native integration to ActivityManager#clearApplicationUserData or the iOS equivalent.

You can however use the Constants.manifest to determine if an app was updated. For example:

when app starts
-> load last manifest.revisionId from "storage"
-> get current manifest.revisionId from Constants.manifest.revisionId

  when these don't match
  -> manually clear storage
  -> store new Constants.manifest.revisionId
