The last 2 days it is difficult to take an icloud backup.... in the end it says Latest backup failed....maybe cloud services of Apple are too busy with the launch of iOS9.... also it takes ages to backup.

I was having issues with backups on PBs and the GM. I updated to the live version yesterday and overnight yesterday, I tried doing a backup again.

I'm pleased to report I was successful. I let it go overnight, checked this morning when I woke up, and it finished.

I was successful last night - it took about 10 times as long as the ones before it - will see when I do a backup later today

No issue here backing up my iPhones and iPad. This was yesterday mid day on the east coast. I did notice it said last back up was never which was odd because I had backed up the day before .

First one, as I stated, was fine. Then it kept failing after a long time. Then I restarted phone and then it worked fine - on phone. My iPad had no issues at all with backup. For those for whom it didn't work - did you try restarting

I couldnt believe that still after exactly 1 month i created this topic and the official launch of iOS9 i have issues with taking a f simple icloud backup.... that i have to sign out my icloud, sign back in, turn backup option off, delete current backup and start taking a new backup.... cause when i try to take a simple new backup (also it takes ages to complete) over the current one i still get (1 MONTH LATER) the message that your backup couldnt completed.... OK APPLE YOU ARE OFFICIALY A JOKE ON CLOUD SERVICES.

Did a back up yesterday, looks like it took up 5 gig and took 3.5 hours to complete. Seems long?, but it did not seem to affect the performance of the phone - just took a long time to finish.

I have no problem with backups on either my 6S or Mini 2. They work fine and don't seem to take more time than they used to.
