    I have a time machine backup. I have a new iPhone 6. I don't have my MacBook. I want to restore my iPhone backup to my new iPhone but I cannot find the folder for such in my TM drive. I've searched for the MobileSync folder and could not find it. Please help!

    EDIT: Found the file. It was hidden.

    The iOS backups would be stored in this folder where ~ is your user folder. But like lakaiordie mentioned, you are going to need a Mac to restore those files to before you can do anything with them to restore your iPhone.

    ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
