Dear Dev

WebKit data (localstorage or local SQLite) are now stored in Library/ Caches folder (instead
of Library/WebKit folder). This is a big problem for all apps using UIWebView and storing
user data, because they will no longer be backed up and may be deleted. There are a lot of
apps using localstorage or SQLite as a critical feature. 

The SQLite database gets deleted because the database is saved in a location on the filesystem
which Apple does not consider to contain persistent data.

*Steps to Reproduce:* 

In a UIWebView, create a new DB or use localStorage with JavaScript. 
You can see that the WebKit data is now stored in Library/Caches :  

*Expected Results:*

We should at least specify the directory of WebKit data (and to set it 
to Documents/ for critical data) 

*Actual Results:* 

The WebKit data are stored in Library/Caches folder, and can be 

To migrate database location from Library/Caches to some other location such as Documents.
