How can I restore iPhone data from an iCloud backup?

Your iPhone data can be restored from iCloud when setting up a new device, or after erasing all data from a device using Settings -> General -> Reset -> Erase All Content and Settings.

You will be prompted by Setup Assistant by a new iPhone to set up as a new phone or restore from backup.

Make sure your iPhone is connected to Wi-Fi and plugged into the charger.
Select the option Restore From iCloud Backup.
Enter your iCloud account and password.
Choose the recent backup you wish to restore to your iPhone.
Enter any passwords required when prompted.

You will see a progress bar with time remaining as iCloud restores your data. When this is complete, iCloud will begin to download apps. You will see a progress bar under apps that are being downloaded. If you need a specific app first, tap its icon to move it ahead in the queue. To check if the restore is finished, navigate to Settings -> iCloud -> Storage & Backup.

iTunes Match users can download albums, playlists and songs from iCloud when the restore is finished.


I have also lost the password on the icloud so regarding this issue I was searching on the net and there I got one of the site and through there I got my solution. The description which is given here it is good but through there you can do the conversation regarding the same if you have any issue.you can ask them questions. So you can follow this link http://www.techsummary.in/windows-software/how-to-retrieve-icloud-password/msg10092/?topicseen#msg10092 and you will get the short solution on this issue.

If you have backed your iPhone in iTunes, you can use Backuptrans iPhone SMS Backup & Restore to recory messages from iTunes backup back to your iPhone. Try it.

Hi,
I did not back up my iPhone before reset. Is there any other way to get back my old messages? Those messages in inbox were of high importance.

Thnx,.

Wow. You're a fucking moron. Kill yourself.

Woah. Completely unnessicary.

Get over yourself, geek loser.

What's wrong with you ? Jeez!

Why would he back up his phone before a reset if he lost all his contacts? Now who's the fu*king moron.

Yes , try holding the home and lock button at the same time for 10 seconds , let go of the home button and continue holding the lock button for 10 seconds and let go then your phone should restart with all your stuff back on it.

I cancelled my iphone from icloud, then activated it. But now I want to retrieve the previous data.

Okay...lets say I wanted to backup all my data from my old ipad to my new ipad...but I have no access to my old ipad anymore because its cracked...I already backed up the cracked, unusable ipad to my iTunes onto my computer AND iCloud. can I backup all my stuff to my new iPad WITHOUT deleting any stuff from my new ipad when I do the backup?

What if you get the "iPhone couldn't restore due to corruption"? That might be because of a difference in the iOS or simple because the previous backup process wasn't fully successful. Then I might recommend you to take a look at the http://goo.gl/1ki8G
Also I would love to see you picking up such a subject, how we can deal with corrupt backups. Cheers!

Good article. If you deleted notes, contacts, messages have not been backed up. You can recover them with this tool.

The process for restoring an iPad from an iCloud backup begins by wiping the iPad, which puts it into the same clean state it was when you first got it out of the box. But before you take this step, it is a good idea to make sure your iPad is being backed up to the iCloud.

i have a new iphone and backed it up from the 'back up from computer option' rather than 'backup from icloud' option.
i have not physically set up icloud however the information that loaded onto my phone is not the most recent so i assume it may be on icloud.
can anyone tell me more about this? i am hesitant to delete everything and try to back up from icloud in case it is empty?
would really appreciate help! thanks

how do i reinstate my stuff on to i tunes from icloud??

iTunes has a nasty habit of deleting the previous backup every time it does a backup. If you really have an old backup intact, there is a way to restore from it. I forget the procedure, but I'm sure you can Google it. It's a good idea to manually go into your backup directory and manually copy it over to a new name once in a while. That way iTunes won't touch it, and you can use it in an emergency such as yours.

Here's a website that describes how to do it:

Perfect. Easy instructions.
Thanks.

If you have the same requirement like me, you can also try to recover you photos by this software. In fact, as for me, I used Vibosoft iPhone data recovery too, it even supports to retrieve all your deleted files like SMS messages, notes, contacts, calendars and so on.

Can I use Icloud on my IPad??? My phone was stolen earlier today and couldnt get a new phone.

Have you tried this:

download.cnet.com/iPhone-Data-Recovery-for-Mac/3000-18551_4-75882825.html

Can't recommend as I haven't tried it myself, but found in a Google search.

Good luck.

If you had the backup file on your computer it might be possible using 3rd party software to extract the app data for a specific app from the backup and copy it back to the ipad (for example, see
ipadconverter-mac.com/restore-ipad-from-backup/

however this wouldn't be possible if your only backup is in iCloud. As far as I know there is no mechanism to do anything other than restore the entire backup from iCloud.

I FREAKING LOVE YOU MAN (NO HOMO I GOT A GF)!!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I THOUGHT I LOST EVERYTHING!!!
YOU SAVED MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

how did u get ur stuff back?
I clicked on restore and it wiped all off. this was my 2nd time doing this.. Im not a techie..
I thought I was updating as software update refused..

Iv lost all pictures and texts but apps still there.

iCloud can't be stably working on restoring lost data from iPhone though it is convenient to make backup. And in worse cases, we have no iCloud backup available. So how can I get back lost iPhone data. credibly and safely? Personally, I recommend Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery.

If you have a new iOS device, or if you need to restore your iOS device to resolve an issue, follow these steps.

1.Follow the initial steps in the iOS Setup Assistant (select your language, and so on).
2.Select Restore from iCloud Backup when the assistant asks you to set up your iPhone (or other iOS device).
3.Select the backup you created earlier.

You can restore a backup only by using the iOS Setup Assistant.

If you've already set up your device, you can erase all current content to go through the iOS Setup Assistant again. Tap Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Do this only if you already have a backup, because this step will remove all current content from your device.
