How does Ionic 2 build upon Angular 2 and use Cordova?

I know this a pretty broad question, but how does Ionic 2 build upon Angular 2 and use Cordova?
What I’ve found looking around have been pretty scarce such as:

Does anyone know of a good resource I’ve probably missed?

Ionic combines Angular2, Cordova and some own code (actually a lot).

Angular2 is the base that Ionic builds on to enable you to build applications that work on multiple platforms. Basically some JS, CSS and HTML code that uses Angular2 as “foundation” to build a spezialized framework you can use.

Then it uses Cordova to put this application you built into a native container that can be deployed onto mobile devices.
