iOS app update with PhoneGap - is saved data lost?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

When using PhoneGap, do users lose all of their saved data when they update an iOS app downloaded from iTunes?

I am hoping that anything stored in either Webstorage or the "Save Game" feature in Construct 2 will be preserved whenever someone downloads a new version of the app from iTunes, but I'm afraid to build a whole game only to have a bunch of upset users when they update the app. I know when I build an app in Objective C I have to go through some hoops to get the Core Data store to migrate correctly.

The other option is to mirror the data to an external server/database, but I want to avoid that expense and complication if I can.
