App updates without loss of local data

New Contributor

Hi folks

I'll be brief. I've never used JAMF, I don't understand it and I won't ever use it (it's not my job) but I'm wondering if you can answer a hypothetical question for me.

Is it possible to update an app (that's been developed by a 3rd party and is used by a business's associates on managed iPads) without wiping the locally stored data that pertains to the app? Or do you always have to delete the existing app (including locally stored data) and then install the newly updated app?

Thank you for your time and any responses. :)
