2 Restore Backup Using iCloud

There is a major difference between restorations using iTunes and iCloud. While the former is a much simpler process, the latter requires you to use the Set Up Assistance. It also requires a stable Wi-Fi connection otherwise the entire transfer fails or takes up a whole lot of time. Here is how you can go about it.

Step 1: First, go to Settings and then click on General. You would then see the Erase all Content and Settings on the device.

Step 2: Go to the Setup Assistance mode.

Step 3: Swipe on the screen to begin the setup process on the device. Remember to join a stable Wi-Fi network or else the transfer either will fail or will take a very long time.

Step 4: Restore from iCloud Backup>Sign in iCloud using Apple ID.

Step 5: Select the iCloud backup you want to restore and wait for the contents to back up. Depending on the speed of the network and the sizes of the files, this may take some time.

What are the disadvantages?

While the aforementioned methods are the most used, there are certain disadvantages they pose for restoration:

1. The first and foremost concern is a stable and fast Wi-Fi connection. Without this the transfer will take ages.

2. After restoration the contents and settings on the iDevice will be replaced by contents in the back up.
