    Anyone have any ideas on why my iCloud restore is taking forever to complete? It's been going strong for 8 hours, all my apps are there, etc., can't figure out what else is downloading, but it's still restoring something. Don't want to end it without knowing everything is definitely there. I am coming from a 64GB 5S that was nearly full, so clearly it could take time, but just want to see if anyone else's restore has been lengthy. At this point if it's not done tomorrow morning I might just do a local backup to my laptop and restore that way.

    Do you have a ton of photos in your Photo Stream, on your Camera Roll or in iMessage? Because those can take awhile if you're on a slower connection. Heck, I'm on a 20MB fiber line and my restore still took about an hour and a half to complete.
