It is not 100% correct to say that componentDidUpdate() is called after componentDidMount(). In the lifecycle of a Component, componentDidMount() is called in the Mounting phase. While componentDidUpdate() is called in the Updating phase.

If there is a state change in the Updating phase that will trigger componentDidUpdate().

This is an important distinction.
