The Apple Watch works closely with the iPhone. Even a backup copy of the accessory software is stored locally on the phone. When you back up the iPhone itself to iCloud or iTunes, the watch will be backed up to the cloud or to your computer.

If your Apple Watch music and photos aren’t syncing, then these backups usually don’t take up much space and aren’t a cause for concern. Usually, several hundred kilobytes are enough to store settings and data from the clock. Even one photo takes up more space. However, restoring Apple Watch software over and over again can create multiple backups. They contain approximately the same data, so these archives are clearly redundant and unnecessary. You can leave them intact, but why keep unnecessary things that can lead to confusion?
In this article, we’ll show you where old Apple Watch backups are located and how you can delete them.

How to delete old Apple Watch backups
1. Launch the application on your iPhone “Settings”…
2. Follow the path General → iPhone Storage… You will have to wait a few seconds for the data to load.
3. Scroll down and find the Watch section. Enter it. Previous Apple Watch backups will appear under “Documents and data”…
4. To delete a backup, swipe it from right to left, or simply click on the button “Delete all backups”to get rid of all files at once.
Of course, deleting old Apple Watch backups doesn’t make much sense. These files are very small in size. However, sometimes you have to deal with duplicates that are certainly not needed.
