    I am selling my MacBook Pro for a MacBook Air. So I will make sure to keep all my files somewhere so I can push it all back into my new mac, but I have a problem : the iPhone, the iPad.
    I don't see their backups showing up in the finder.

    I'm afraid when I plug my iphone into the new mac, it will open iTunes and say it is already synced with another library, would you like to erase it all and sync it with this new one?
    So I'm gonna loose my backup at that point or something?

    Or it will be aaaalll good, and will create backup in the new mac with how my iphone is at the moment i plug it in, i mean, all the settings, messages etc etc :)

    I have been able to take friends phones and just by clicking backup in iTunes create a backup so you can restore and update. This should be fine if you are saving all your media before you sell your mac. If you are looking to sync all of your media from your phone back to your new mac, I strongly recommend DiskAid. All music photos videos ect. can be taken from any phone and saved into the respected file type.
