Expected Behavior

<!-- How did you expect your project to behave? It’s fine if you’re not sure your understanding is correct. Just write down what you thought would happen. -->

I have an app that created by awesome React-native and my layout designed to be in RTL mode. I've set up an option for forcing the layout to be RTL.

Actual Behavior

<!-- Did something go wrong? Is something broken, or not behaving as you expected? Describe this section in detail, and attach screenshots if possible. Don't just say "it doesn't work"! -->

But my option doesn't works in first app load after installing. This feature applies in second run I wrote this option in our index.js:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { I18nManager } from 'react-native';
import { Provider } from 'react-redux';


class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <Provider store={store}>
        <PersistGate loading={null} persistor={persistor}>
          <MainStack />

export default App;

<!-- Please share a project that reproduces the issue. There are two ways to do it:

* Create a new app using and try to reproduce the issue in it.
  This is useful if you roughly know where the problem is, or can’t share the real code.

* Or, copy your app and remove things until you’re left with the minimal reproducible demo.
  This is useful for finding the root cause. You may then optionally create a Snack.

This is a good guide to creating bug demos: Once you’re done, copy and paste the link to the Snack or a public GitHub repository below: -->

That's a useful answer

@sm2017 Add the following

#import <React/RCTI18nUtil.h>


  [[RCTI18nUtil sharedInstance] allowRTL:YES];
  [[RCTI18nUtil sharedInstance] forceRTL:YES];

inside didFinishLaunchingWithOptions
