assets bundle download persistance on iOS


When loading assets bundles on iOS platform, are they persistent if the application is closed ( and not kept in the background as a multi task). If they are stored, how persistent is this storage?

I am asking, because we are currently wondering if it's actually a viable solution over making an update of the app via iTunes.

Maybe it's documented but failed to find this info,

Thanks for your help,


AssetBundles downloaded via the WWW class are not persistent across application runs.

For desktop platforms we have our caching solution to solve this - which is not yet available on iOS, but we are considering changing that in the future.


For more information check this manual page - it describes how to cache AssetBundles to the file system yourself using .NET APIs, and thus implementing your own Caching on mobile platforms.
