Thanks. This probably works although I don't have a jailbroken device. I have an Ipad Mini 1st gen. Sigh.

Thanks for the updated filepath so many "guides" out there still use the old "~/Library/caches" location

Does this still work with ios 10? I tried this recently but my apps crash upon installing. With App thinning I'm skeptical but I've heard of people having success with it.
