Potential loss of data using savedata loaddata?

We are building an app that records data and sends it to a SharePoint list that needs to work in ofline mode. We are looking at using the loaddata and savedata functions to acheive that, but I found an article Persistant Data from 2016 that discusses this topic suggesting that when PowerApps updates the chached data could be lost.

The data should not need to be cahed for a long time, maybe a few days, but is not reproducible if it is lost. The article mentions using the import/export control would avoid losing data during updates, but seems more complicated.

 I have found many examples of people using savedata / loaddata and not  import/export and no one seems to be mentioning the potential loss of data so I was wondering if anything changed since the atrical was written meaning that the data cached using savedata has become more resistant to powerapp updates?
