    So my photos library got completely corrupt on my iPhone 5s (hard to explain) on iOS 9.3 PB. Luckily all my photos are backed up elsewhere so it's not tragic.

    My question is if I can "Erase All Content and Settings" and restore from an iCloud backup on iOS 9.3. My iPhone backs up every night so I can't restore on earlier versions of iOS with the current iOS 9.3 iCloud backup present.

    Is this possible? I'm afraid to erase everything and being forced to downgrade 9.2.1 and not being able to restore my content. And no, I do not have a backup on my computer unfortunately.

    Thanks for the help!

    If you have a backup that was done while on 9.3 and you're still on 9.3 then yes you should be good to go. The only thing that can't be done with a 9.3 backup is to use it when on a lower version install. (IE can't use a 9.3 backup if you're on 9.2.1)

    Thank you!

    I want to see what other responses I get though before I even try to restore, but thanks anyway!
