My iCloud restore (moving iP2 to iP3) says 9 hours. Anyone else having a long wait time noted on their new iPad setup?

My internet is clocking fine (50mb/5mb) by all measurements I can tell.

It's the amount of junk you're floating to the cloud. I would suggest switching to iTunes backup if you don't want to wait.

Yes, local backup/restore is always going to be speedier than cloud backup/restore.

iCloud backup is great for everyday use and disaster recovery, but for a planned migration do it locally if at all possible.

Especially since there might be just a few other people trying to restore from iCloud today... :rolleyes:

Not surprising, tons of people are trying to do the same thing across the world, iCloud is probably insanely bogged down with iPad restores right now. Patience young grasshopper!
