What are iPhone Backup Files

iTunes can back up most data on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. And these data that are located in a specific place of your computer are called iPhone backup files which could be used to restore data in your iPhone if you accidently deleted something in iPhone, buy a new iPhone, etc.

Backed-up information includes purchased music, TV shows, apps, and books; photos and video in the Camera Roll; device settings (for example, Phone Favorites, Wallpaper, and Mail, Contacts, Calendar accounts); app data; Home screen and app organization; Messages (iMessage, SMS, and MMS), ringtones, and more. Media files synced from your computer aren't backed up, but can be restored by syncing with iTunes.

If you're looking for the location of your iPhone Backup files, then look no further. Whether you use Mac OS X or Windows, the iPhone backup process is basically the same, iTunes backs up all your iPhone files and identifier information to a specific directory in the locations that we are about to talk. OK let's start to find iPhone backup files.

Where are iPhone Backup Files Located

Now I will show you how to locate backup file for iPhone in computer:

  • iPhone backup files on Mac OS X -- ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
    The above tells where iPhone backup files in Mac OS X are, and the "~" symbol stands for your home directory which is the same place where all your other personal documents are stored.
  • iPhone backup files on Windows Vista and Windows 7/8/8.1/10 -- C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
  • iPhone backup files on Windows XP -- C:\DocumentsandSettings\user\ApplicationData\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
  • Obviously if your main drive is not C, then you'll have to change that. The same goes for "user". For instance, if the user name is "Andy", you will have to change "user" in location to "Andy".
