Remove Provisioning profiles from iTunes Windows or Mac

Hi Guys,

So while I am doing an update to a mobile app that the company I worked has launched some months ago, I still carry loads of rubbish profiles in my iTunes. I felt like it about time I should get rid of those old profiles I used while I tested my last release.

Alright so without wasting much time, lets see how we can achieve this.

On Windows 7, Follow these steps

  1. Browse to C:\Users\YOUR_WIN7_USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileDevice\Provisioning Profiles
  2. Delete them.
  3. Now Sync

On Windows Vista, Follow these steps

  1. Browse to C:\Users\YOUR_VISTA_USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileDevice\Provisioning Profiles
  2. Delete the profiles that you don’t want.
  3. Now Sync with your iPhone or iPad

For Windows XP, there is only a small change with path, You can repeat the above steps as

  1. Browse to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_XP_Username\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileDevice\Provisioning Profiles
  2. Delete profiles that are not required.
  3. Now Sync your iPad or iPhone


  1. Browse to /Users/OSX_USER_NAME/Library/MobileDevice/Provisioning Profiles
  2. Delete profiles that you deemed invalid.
  3. Now Sync iTunes with your iPad or iPhone

That said If you just want to get Rid of a profile from your iPad or IPhone then do this


  1. Settings >
  2. General >
  3. Profile >
  4. Click on Remove button, that will get rid of that.

Just on a side note I want to tell you that next time you sync your device with iTunes then those profiles will reappear.

I hope this helps
