Removing old iPhone/iPad Backups FTW

A few days ago I tweeted this:

getting tired of having more free space on my phone than on my laptop

Which got me thinking. How much space is being used up on my laptop just for backing up my phone? Some investigation yielding the following obvious result. Alot.

But what’s worse is that there are backups for old iOS devices I don’t even use anymore, like my old 3G iPhone and the iPhone4 that Apple so nicely replaced when it had headphone issues. Anyway after culling all that crap out, I now have plenty of Gigs free on my old Macbook Pro, possibly putting the day when I need to upgrade even further into the future.
