Path for iPhone / iPad backups on OSX Monterey

Posted by Admin on October 30, 2023

The path for your iPhone / iPad backups on OSX Monterey (and presumably others) is:
~Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup

You won’t be able cd into that path using terminal because (I believe) the directory is protected.  Even with SUDO I hit a wall.  Instead, use finder. (I know, right?)  Open finder, then Go -> Go To Folder -> then paste that link.  Your device backups will be burried in apple’s classic gibberish UUID folders and filenames.

Mess with your data and backups at your own risk!!
