    Old version of iOS app updates no longer go to trash but to other?
    Unfortunately, that makes no sense whatsoever. Can you perhaps reword it and be a bit more specific?

    That sounds like a blend of email, App Store, and storage! Makes no sense!

    Could you please show us a screenshot possibly? Thanks. I know of no folder called other that is in Finder. When I update apps through iTunes, the old version of the app is put into Trash in Finder.

    Is it possible that the generic "other" includes trash?

    That's strange. And where is the "other" folder located in your OSX? Can you find the path to it?
    When you right click on one ipa in there and click on "open in containing folder" or something like that, where does it open it at? Trash folder? Or which folder house those old ipa?

    Okay, I have gone through my iMac files and found the "Other" files. They are random as to where they are located on my machine. They are also located on my storage drives. Can you send the old versions of apps to the Trash from that location? First I would like you to click on one and get the info as to what path they are taking to get there. This may assist me or another member in providing help. Thank you!

    It doesn’t happen often, but there may be times when you really want to downgrade to the previous version of an iOS app or even older. For example, you just downloaded the latest update of your favorite app to your iPhone, but the new version crashes hard and often and the old version is no longer available in the App Store. Maybe it’s a really buggy version or maybe the new version doesn’t like your spiffy brand new iPhone.

    It shows open in iTunes (default) or Archive Utility. They can be moved to the Trash
