Save space on your mac - iOS Upgrade files

Disk DriveRecently once again I have been having space issues on my iMac, it's seven years old and only has a 320Gb hard drive.  Nearly all of this is used by iPhoto and iTunes.

I was running low so started to look around and I came across old iOS upgrade file for the families iOS devices.  I had files for upgrading the iPads, iPhones and iPods.

If you look under ~/Library/iTunes/ , You will see


  • iPad Software Updates
  • iPhone Software Updates
  • iPod Software Updates


Inside there you will see the files from the upgrades, these are normally around >1Gb is size.

Again this may only get you back a few Gb but every little helps when you are low on space.

I am always interested in your thoughts so if you have any comments or feedback then please feel free to add any comments, or you can mail me  here.
