    Hi folks, I have been regularly backing up my iphone to itunes for years but now wanting to backup to icloud as an added measure.

    As a test run, i have deleted tons of apps i dont need and all music, and its suggesting it will take 21 hours? Is this normal? There will be about 5gb tops and my wifi is pretty fast usually?

    21 is a bit long for the first backup. Do you have a ton of media in your Camera Roll? That's about all I can see forcing it to take that long.
