How To Manage iPhone and iPad Backups In macOS Catalina

It is a good idea to back up your iPhone or iPad to your Mac, but it is also easy to forget old backups when you switch to a new device. These old backups take up a lot of space on your Mac's drive. You can find them in macOS Catalina if you know where to look and see how much space they use and easily delete them to free up that space.

    I always have a local backup of my iPhone on my mac. The problem I have is the name of my new iPhone is Kens iPhone 6 (same as previous phone). I currently have a model newer than a 6 but it is still called “Kens iPhone 6”. Can I change the name of the device to something else (Kens iPhone 10)?

    Ken: On your iPhone, go to Settings, General, About and then Name and change it there.
