The original Tab Navigator component has been retired for a separate Top and Bottom Tab Navigator. Existing projects that have the original Tab Navigator will continue to be supported but we encourage creators to migrate to the new Top and Bottom Tab Navigator.

On Android, the tab bar is usually oriented at the top of the screen. On iOS, it is usually on the bottom.
