    Been having a consistent issue where my iPad 2 (running iOS 7) won't backup to iCloud. Doesn't matter if I trigger the backup manually or just plug it into power and let it do its thing overnight.

    Example: right now the progress bar is at around 15-20% and the time left indicates less than one minute. It's been that way for the past hour. :confused:

    Anyone have any suggestions? I did a search through the posts here on top of searches through Apple Support pages & Google, nothing useful came up. Thanks in advance!

    Are you on iOS 7.0.4?

    Aside from asking the obvious question if iCloud Backup is turned on, only other thing I can think of is to suggest a hard reboot, then try again.

    Yeah, latest version. I'll try a hard reboot again, pretty sure I already did once but hey, here it goes again. =)

    EDIT: This second attempt at the hard reboot seems to have done the trick. The progress bar has actually progressed and there's only a few minutes left. Thanks!

    Glad it worked out for you. Always amazing what quirks that reboot can fix.
