    At the moment I have one iPhone but would like to have an extra in case that one gets lost or something. But I wouldn't want to configure the no 2 iPhone manually, so can I just restore the extra iPhone from my iCloud backup, and keep using both phones? I know I can use iCloud backup to restore an existing iphone, but can it also be used to copy everything to an additional iphone? Will all apps and settings within apps (e-mail accounts, icloud account a.s.o.), just get copied to the extra iphone, essetially making it identical to the original?

    Pretty much everything that is in the backup (as it is at the time of the backup) should be there.
