What is a BUNDLE file?

A BUNDLE file is a loadable bundle used by macOS or a macOS application. System-level BUNDLE files contain a collection of related files to which macOS needs access. App-specific BUNDLE files are typically used as plug-ins.

More Information

While BUNDLE files appear as singular files in Finder, they are actually macOS packages (which contain a collection of files). Many of macOS's BUNDLE files are stored in sub-directories of the following directory:

Macintosh HD/​System/​Library

These files contain various data used by macOS and default macOS applications.

In contrast, app-specific BUNDLE files are often stored in an app's installation or support directory.

How to open a BUNDLE file

BUNDLE files are not meant to be opened manually. However, if you want to view a BUNDLE file's contents in macOS, you can do so by:

  1. Right-clicking the BUNDLE file.
  2. Selecting View Package Contents.
