    If I downgrade from ios8 to ios7, will I lose everything from icloud? As I am sure my phone has auto backed up to icloud over the last few days. I have a itunes back up before I upgraded to ios8 is this good enough to have all my settings contacts, in app data like whatsapp convos?

    I wasn't aware that it was possible to downgrade to iOS 7.x after upgrading to iOS 8

    If you use your iTunes backup from just before upgrading, this will take you back to the point of that backup.

    iCloud backups made from iOS 8 will require iOS 8 to be restored.
    iTunes backups that you made from iOS 7 will still work, though.

    Yeah, I've done this on one of my devices and if you still have a backup from iOS 7 it'll work fine with a DFU downgrade.

    All your iCloud's backups and iCloud's documents have done with iOS 7 will be available after downgrade from iOS 8 to iOS 7. :)
