Application Sandbox

Every iOS application has its own application sandbox. An application sandbox is a directory on the filesystem that is barricaded from the rest of the filesystem. Your application must stay in its sandbox, and no other application can access its sandbox. Figure 16.3 shows the application sandbox for iTunes/iCloud.
