Power Apps on mobile: Date formats with different locales

Power Apps detects the phone's (iOS) current language settings nicely. On a phone with English locale, everything is displayed in English - on a German phone everything is in German.


Enter language differences: Number formats and date formats are different between languages (11.06.2020 vs 6/11/20). Date picker controls don't seem to natively support language differences (i.e. when I have a date picker control and use it with a en-us phone I get US-dates, when I use it with a German phone I get DE-dates in the backend).


Do I always have to convert dates with large IF-functions? Use TimeZoneOffset, DateValue etc. or am I missing something? I pretty much want to use a DatePicker and save some common format (e.g. UTC ISO8601) to the backend. Shouldn't this be the default?
