How to Convert a JavaScript Array of Strings to Uppercase?

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

// ES6+
const arr = ['foo', 'Bar', 'bAz'];
const newArr = => str.toUpperCase());

console.log(newArr); // ['FOO', 'BAR', 'BAZ']

You can rewrite the callback to without arrow function to make it compatible with ES5.

The code above would create a new array with all strings in the array in uppercase. 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++) {

console.log(newArr); // ['FOO', 'BAR', 'BAZ']
