    I have having trouble backing up my iPhone 6 plus on 8.3 b2. It progresses then comes up with this error:
    [​IMG]
    I have tried the following methods which did not work:
    -sign out/in to iCloud
    -hard reset
    -turn of photos in backup
    -repeated all those options multiple times

    Any help?!
    I can answer any questions to help solve this for me!

    Device info:
    iPhone 6 Plus
    iOS 8.3 Beta 2
    More than half storage available on device
    More than half of iCloud data not used (9.5gb used of 20gb)

    I somehow solved it by the way most people would give up on. I just kept tapping backup after each failed attempt after the eighth try, it worked. Strange... Let me know how it works out for you.

    I occasionally get this but doing a manual backup and leaving the device alone until it has completed usually fixes things.
    iCloud backups since I got my 6+ have been temperamental to say the least. With my i5 and i4 the auto backup would begin pretty much the moment I plugged my phone into charge. I would connect the charger, go to the bathroom to wash and when I came to bed 15 mins later the backup had been done.

    Nowadays I can go two weeks without an auto backup because it never happens. As I leave my phone in airplane mode whilst it charges overnight, the phone never gets a chance to backup. Previously it did it in the small window whilst I brushed my teeth and before I turned Airplane mode on when I climbed into bed. I find that these days the phone needs to be left unattended for quite some time before an auto backup commences.

    Had the same issue. I solved it by deleting the old iCloud backup and having it make a new one.

    I did that then backed up 8 times or so until it actually competed the backup.

    It's like it needs a kick-start to begin backing up right. Backs up correctly every time now.
