Take a look at the specialFolderPath documentation.   Location of file, controls backup.

home - The (unique) folder containing the application bundle and its associated data and folders.
documents - The folder in which the application should store any document data (this folder is backed up by iTunes on sync).
cache - The folder in which the application should store any transient data that needs to be preserved between launches (this folder is not backed up by iTunes on sync).
library - The folder in which the application can store data of various types. In particular, data private to the application should be stored in a folder named with the app's bundle identifier inside library (this folder is backed up by iTunes on sync).
temporary - The folder in which the application should store any temporary data that is not needed between launches (this folder is not backed up by iTunes on sync).
engine - The folder containing the built standalone engine (i.e. the bundle). This is useful for constructing paths to resources that have been copied into the bundle at build time.
