Where APK files are stored?

APK (Android Package Kit) files are usually stored in the Downloads folder on an Android device, unless otherwise specified by the user or the app's settings. You can also use a file manager app to locate and manage your APK files. Here's how to find APK files on your Android device:

  1. Open the app drawer on your Android device
  2. Look for the "Downloads" app or open your preferred file manager app
  3. Navigate to the "Download" folder (or any folder where you store downloaded files)
  4. Look for the APK file you wish to install or manage.

Where APK files are stored in Android?

If you have manually downloaded an APK file from a website or another source, you can find it in the Downloads folder. However, if you have installed an app from the Google Play Store or another app store, the APK file may already be automatically deleted.

You can also find installed APK files using a file manager app (find some on AndroidFreeware) to navigate to the Android folder, then the Data folder. From there, you can find the name of the package for the app and locate its APK file.

It's worth noting that modifying or deleting an APK file manually can have unwanted consequences on the app's functionality, and it's generally recommended to only install and manage apps through the official app store or the app developer's website to prevent potential security risks.

Where APK files are stored in Android Studio?

In Android Studio, APK files can be found in the project's "build" directory. The exact location depends on your project settings and the build variant you are using, but typically the APK file can be found in the following location:

  1. Navigate to the root directory of your project in Android Studio
  2. Open the "app" folder
  3. Open the "build/outputs" folder
  4. Look for the "apk" folder, which should contain generated APK files for various build types and flavors.

You can also locate APK files through the "Build Variants" panel, which you can access by clicking on the "Build Variants" tab on the left sidebar. From there, you can see the location of the output APK file for the currently selected build variant.
