    So I'm having an issue with the iPad Pro not turning on after being charged over night.
    - I did a quick iCloud backup and then did a erase all content and settings.
    - I attempted to restore from iCloud, but after 20 minutes, it gets stuck at a white background with black logo screen.
    - I figured it was restoring, so I left it doing its thing for 3 hours while I went to grab some food. Came back, and it was still stuck at that screen.
    - I did a hard reboot, and it finally was restoring my apps.
    - Problem is, it downloaded all of my apps, but didn't restore my settings. Hours of work were spent logging into Google, dropbox, 1Password, Slack, etc..
    - So I tried restoring from iCloud backup and the same thing happened (stuck at screen, hard reboot, restored apps without user prefs)

    Anyone else have this issue?

    i did an itunes restore from backup from my ipad2 on the weekend with zero issue. all i had to make the extra effort for was transferring documents in pages and numbers.
