This is where all of the pre-installed native apps, as well as native jailbreak apps (from Cydia and elsewhere), are installed. They can't be deleted under normal circumstances. One can delete them on a jailbroken device through some sort of file-management tool such as SSH or iFile, although doing this is highly unrecommended as they can't be re-installed. Cydia will move this directory to the user partition and create a symlink to it.

/Applications --> /var/stash/Applications.*****

NOTE: In the title, the asterisks represent randomly generated characters that are generated when the folder is created and symlinked

App Store apps are installed by iTunes in the /var/mobile/Applications folder.


This directory typically contains only application bundles.
