I've been using git stash pop for quite some time. I recently found out about the git stash apply command. When I tried it out, it seemed to work the same as git stash pop.

What is the difference between git stash pop and git stash apply?

 see these commands 

git stash pop

Throws away the stash after applying it, 

whereas git stash apply leaves it in the stash list for possible later reuse.

This happens unless there are conflicts after git stash pop, in which case it will not remove the stash, leaving it to behave exactly as git stash apply.

There is one more way to look at git stash pop is 

git stash apply 

&& 

git stash drop

Hope this helps to resolve your problem.
