Uninstalling the app

Amplify iOS v1 is deprecated as of June 1st, 2024. No new features or bug fixes will be added. Dependencies may become outdated and potentially introduce compatibility issues.

Please use the latest version (v2) of Amplify Library for Swift to get started. Refer to the upgrade guide for instructions on upgrading your application to the latest version.

Amplify libraries should be used for all new cloud connected applications. If you are currently using the AWS Mobile SDK for iOS, you can access the documentation here.

Some Amplify categories such as Analytics, Auth, and DataStore persist data to the local device. Some of that data is automatically removed when a user uninstalls the app from the device.

Amplify stores Auth information in the local system keychain, which does not guarantee any particular behavior around whether data is removed when an app is uninstalled.

Deciding on when to clear this auth information is not something that the SDK can do in a generic way, so App developers should decide when to clear the data by signing out. One strategy for accomplishing this would be to use UserDefaults to detect whether or not the app is launching for the first time, and invoking Auth.signOut() if the app has not been launched before.
