How do i restore my icloud backup to my new phone

  • randers4 Level 9 Level 9

    When you set up your new iPhone you will be given the option to set it up as a new iPhone or restore it from an iCloud backup.  If you have already set up your new phone you need to start over by going to Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Contents and Settings.  Then set it up again and when given the option choose to restore from your iCloud Backup.  Be sure to have it plugged into a charger as restoring from and iCloud backup can take quite a while.

    I broke my 4s and am trying to restore all my stuff back to the iPhone 4 but when restoring iCloud is not showing my update from the 4S? Help please

    What do you mean by "...when restoring iCloud is not showing my update from the 4S"?  Are you saying it isn't seeing an iCloud backup to restore from?  Or, that you restored from the backup and all your previous information isn't on your phone?  Or something else?

    My iPhone4 isn't seeing my last back up from my iphone4S all it can see is previous iphone4 restores... My friend just let me reset her iphone4s to see if my backup showed on hers and it did on her 4S... But won't show on my regular iphone4

    Is it possible that your iPhone 4 is running iOS 5.0.1 and you 4S was running iOS 5.1?
