Can somebody tell me where my iPhone backup resides? I mistakenly backed it up to my computer, when I really wanted to back it up to iCloud. I have a small HD, and I want to remove the backup.

Never mind, I found it . . .

If you backup to your iCoud, you also need to backup to your iPhone to iTunes on your computer, I think, but the files backup on your computer cannot read.

Tutorial: How to Backup iPhone Apps to iCloud?

Step 1. Open iPhone. Press the home button for a few seconds to open your iPhone.

Step 2. Connect iPhone to Wi-Fi
Tap Settings from the iPhone's Homescreen and press Network in the Settings screen. Then tap the WiFi button and slide the slider to "on". To connect to a public network, just tap the network name and you will complete connecting iPhone to Wi-Fi.

Step 3. Enter ID and Password
Enter your Apple ID and password to log in the iCloud.

Step 4. Sync apps from iPhone to iCloud
