    So I got a new iPhone because my GPS **** the bed on my iPhone 7+.

    I have been doing a restore on it since this afternoon and its still not done. Even the apps haven't updated yet unless I press to make it a priority?

    Is there a way to tell how much more I have to go and whats taking it so long?

    When I had upgraded I backed up to MBP and cloud. Tried to restore from cloud and gave up waiting so finally ended up restoring from backup off MBP so not quite sure how long it'll really take. Sorry

    Yeah mine started at "30 minutes remaining" and made it to 4-5 hours before I hit cancel lol.

    Wow. Mine showed a time remaining, albeit ludicrous

    Its dependent on how many apps, movies, music, tv shows, and photos to have, plus then your internet connection speed. It could take as little as 30 minutes to as long as 12 hours. It just really depends on a lot of factors.

    This is primarily why I only use iTunes restores. I create an iCloud backup and let it run automatically as a fail-safe if my iTunes restore fails, and incase I can't get to iTunes for a few days, but I definitely avoid iCloud restore if possible.

    I may start doing the same thing, finally got all my apps back by manually prioritizing them but i wish i knew what was finished and what wasn't.

    Internet speed isn't an issue..
