    Hey all

    I'm currently downloading IOS6 through iTunes on my MacBook Air. I see the download size is 887mb.

    I'm tight on space on my MBA, so I was wondering if IOS6 was saved anywhere on my MBA, or if it gets deleted when the iPhone is updated?

    If it is stored on my MBA, is it ok to delete it when I've finished updating my iPhone.

    Thanks in advance :)

    yes it is saved to your mac. you can delete it but if needed in future you would have to download again or put it on a external pen/hdd.

    You can find it by clicking finder, click go up the top of screen, hold down alt and another folder called library appears, in there is iTunes then software updates.

    or /Users/username/Library/iTunes

    Thanks for the reply.

    Apologies for being stupid here, but I can't find /Users/username/Library/iTunes ... there is no "library" folder in my username folder... just an iTunes folder. Is IOS6 in here? If so, where?

    Thanks

    Did you try "You can find it by clicking finder, click go up the top of screen, hold down alt and another folder called library appears, in there is iTunes then software updates" as in the post above?

    That works for me.

    When you are in Finder, a menu bar will appear at the top of the Finder window. The items display are: Finder File Edit View Go Window Help

    Click on Go, then hold down the alt (aka Option) key your keyboard, and Library will appear in the list. Click on Library. You should now see the list of folders and files in your library, including the iTunes folder.
