FIAS and App store update strategies?

What is everyone doing for updating stand-alone FIAS apps and retaining local user data on the device only, no FMS connection?

 

I know the changes can be managed internally in the app with an auto or manual update, but what about updates through iTunes? All data will be lost once the update is pushed through. Records can be exported but the device will not know to do that on its own before update. Is the only solution managing updates within the app solution? Maybe the app store is only good for solutions that are informational and do not actually store user data.

 

I have not tried MDM yet but it seems it may have a similar issue.
