Its great in theory but I just updated my iPad 2 and girlfriends iPhone 4 to beta 2. restored the ipad from icloud backup in about 20 minutes. now its downloading all the apps over the air. its going to take awhile. My girlfriends phone is reading 16 hours to finish the icloud backup........I like the idea of icloud but plugging it into the computer is alot quicker however if you choose to backup to the cloud you no longer have current backups on your computer. Apple needs to either enable both at the same or build something into mac osx that lets itunes download your current backup every night so you always have the most current backup ready to be installed in less then 16 hours. Or maybe Im doing this wrong and you guys will tell me a more time efficient way to do this?
