I've always preferred to use a wired connection to my Mac Mini for iTunes encrypted backups of my iPhones. Works perfectly. No issues. Passwords and settings all carry over. Very reliable and robust process. On my kid's phone, recently, I tried an iCloud backup/restore. Seemed ok. Wasn't any faster in my opinion, but I did find that I needed to enter in a lot more settings and app passwords than via the iTunes method. Is that typical? From what a read here, both are encrypted backups and figured it would be exactly the same. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204136 With our 7's arriving in a couple days, which method do you think is better for a backup/restore to move to the 7 (I know some like to setup from scratch, but I'm not interested in that option). Thanks!
