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 locally on Mac or Windows, the watch will be backed up to the cloud or computer as well.

If your Apple Watch music and photos don’t sync, 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. But repeatedly restoring Apple Watch software can create multiple backups. The data they contain is approximately the same, 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. Run 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 the screen and find the Watch section. Enter it. Previous Apple Watch backups appear under “Documents and data”…
4. To delete a backup, swipe it from right to left, or just click on the button Delete All Copiesto 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.
