Though the Apps store is not available in the new iTunes, you may still find that the “Mobile Applications” folder is still occupied by huge space. The truth is that, iTunes just removes the entrance of app, but it doesn’t remove any data from your computer. That’s why you can still find your previously-downloaded apps on your computer. However, those app files are not useless for you because you can’t move it to your iPhone or other iOS devices.
So don’t let your computer space eaten by such useless files! You can easily remove it and any other useless or junk files from iTunes to make iTunes and your computer clean and run at optimum. All without breaking a sweat.
What’s Stored in Mobile Application Folder?
iTunes has the capacity to occupy annoyingly large amounts of space on your device. It usually does this by saving a lot of useless files like logs, cache and other unneeded files.
Your mobile apps folder contain the app installation files which you downloaded from App Store in iTunes. These files may be useful for you in the old iTunes, but there are pretty much useless to you in the new iTunes.
Manually Clean Your iTunes Mobile Application Folder
It is possible to manually get rid of the junk in your iTunes mobile application folder. Although, in order to do this, you would need to know your way around your device and its directories.
Generally, your iTunes media folder is stored in the following directory:
- For Windows: C:\Users\chen\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Mobile Applications
