In the macOS, iOS, NeXTSTEP, and GNUstep programming frameworks, property list files are files that store serialized objects. Property list files use the filename extension
.plist, and thus are often referred to as p-list files.

|Uniform Type Identifier (UTI)||com.apple.property-list|
|Developed by||Apple Computer and GNUstep,|
|Type of format||Serialization of dictionary objects.|
Property lists are also used for localization strings for development. These files use the
.stringsdict extensions. The former is a "reduced" old-style plist containing only one dictionary without the braces (see propertyListFromStringsFileFormat), while the latter is a fully-fledged plist. Xcode also uses a
.pbxproj extension for old-style plists used as project files.
