How to Convert a JavaScript Array of Strings to Lowercase?

Find out how to make all strings lowercase in a JavaScript array of strings

In JavaScript, you can make all strings in an array of strings lowercase by calling the String.prototype.toLowerCase() method on every element of the array using Array.prototype.map(), for example, like so:

// ES6+
const arr = ['FOO', 'Bar', 'bAz'];
const newArr = arr.map((str) => str.toLowerCase());

console.log(newArr); // ['foo', 'bar', 'baz']

You can rewrite the callback to Array.prototype.map() without arrow function to make it compatible with ES5.

The code above would create a new array with all strings in the array in lowercase. You can achieve the same with a simple for loop as well:

const arr = ['FOO', 'Bar', 'bAz'];
const newArr = [];

for (let i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {
    newArr.push(arr[i].toLowerCase());
}

console.log(newArr); // ['foo', 'bar', 'baz']
