Android and iOS apps behaving oddly when installing as an update to previous version

rarenivarrarenivar USMember ✭✭

I'm working on an update for apps that are currently in the Google Play and iTunes app stores.
I've been testing throughout development on simulators and physical devices and the app is working as expected.
However, after doing beta builds for iOS and Android and installing these on devices that had the app currently in the app stores, some images are not displaying. These images are included in the PCL project as 'Embedded resources' and are referenced by both the iOS and Android project. The weird part is that, if I uninstall the app and install the same beta build from scratch, the images show up.

Any idea what might be causing this?

    I think I know what's causing this. After I go settings/apps on my device and clear the app's data, the images are now displaying. It must be caching the old images and not referencing the new ones. Is there a way to delete all data from the previous app version when installing an update?
