Where is the Backup Location of iDevice in Mac

in Mac OS X your iPhone files are backed up at the following location:
~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
The (~) symbol signifies your home directory, which is the same place all your other personal documents are stored.

Phone Backup Location for Windows 7, XP, and Vista
Windows XP stores all of your iPhone backup files in this location:
C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
Windows Vista and Windows 7 backs up the iPhone files to here:
C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
Obviously if your main drive is not C: then you’ll have to change that, same goes for ‘user’

How Show Hidden Files in Mac

Launch the Terminal and enter these commands exactly as shown. The first command activates the ability to see the hidden files:
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
Now you must relaunch the Finder by killing it, this is how the changes take effect:
killall Finder
If you want to hide hidden files again (those preceded with a .) and go back to the default Mac settings, you can just type the following:
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
Again you will need to kill the Finder so that it can relaunch for changes to take effect:
killall Finder
