    Today when I set up my new phone from an iCloud restore it asked for the password for all accounts who have content on that phone. This included obviously my main account, my wife's, and an old one of mine BUT it also asked for 2 weird accounts. One was something like uyity@gmail.com and another was a Chinese name like xienwu@gmail.com neither I recognized.

    I obviously didn't have the passwords for these so their content didn't come along with the restore but I really wonder what it was. Does it have anything to do with being in the Beta program? (or installing the generic Profile which allows users to enter the Beta program)?

    Perhaps there is some content that came from them? Some songs you might have gotten somewhere or videos or books or something else?

    Oh, huh. I don't know.

    Did you use these Apple IDs to download apps?

    Definitely not and if I did I would have recognized the address in some way.

    same case just happening on my new iphone 6S (i have updated it to 9.1 PB2 same to my old iphone 6 before restoring) right now... right after i chose the correct backup file to restore from icloud (that means i have already entered correctly my apple id and password. i only have 1 apple id account.)

    it didn't prompt me to enter other people's id password, but the password for my old apple id, which has long been changed to the current one under 1 single account. again, i only have 1 apple id account.
