    I am picturing a massive drain on iCloud servers on Friday as everyone activates their new iPhone 5s and commence to restore them from the Cloud. I then picture a flood of posts complaining about slow connection speeds or failed restorations.

    Don't forget to back up your current iPhone to iTunes before you activate your new phone, even if you regularly back up to the Cloud. I plan to restore from my iTunes backup.

    That's actually a good idea. Might do that. Restoring from iTunes is faster as well.
