It starts out by saying two hours, ans then, over the course of a few hours, gets longer and longer until it's one day +. Started over. Anyone else?

Mine started with not showing estimated time but then went from 2 hours to 12 hours. But eventually it took around 35 minutes.

Can't do the direct transfer because I turned my 10 X Max at Apple when I got my new 11 Max Pro.

I did iPhone upgrade program so they had my old phone wiped before they gave me my new one. UGH.

Mine doesnt even give me a time. Just the apple logo with a bar that is full but not progressing forward.

Mine went fairly quickly. Was going from 10 max to 11 pro max. I picked restore from iCloud which took about 20 minutes from the time I made the selection. The screen showed around 1 hour for direct phone to phone transfer or 15 minutes before I could use the phone for iCloud with everything downloading slowly for the rest of the day. The entire process from turning on the phone, activation, Apple Pay activation, watch activation and the initial iCloud download took about 35 minutes. AT&T purchased through Apple.

Mine has been sitting here on the Apple Logo and loading bar for a couple hours now. It's appears to be very very close to the end of the bar. It's not changing, and it's not getting hot either.

I'm experiencing this with the iPhone to iPhone transfer. Old phone said "complete", new phone said "12 minutes left" then rebooted itself. The progress bar has slowly filled up and I'm not sure if I should reboot it and go with an iCloud restore or just be patient...

I'm on 11 Pro.... Having the same issue just sitting at the same spot saying an hour forever and out of nowhere it just started to speed up again going back down to 40min...then 35...33...32..30...28 and the bar progressed a little bit. This is as of 2:05 PST.

Attempting to restore backup from iTunes and it's stuck on the apple logo with an almost full progress bar. iTunes status shows "Waiting for changes to be applied".

...so when is 13.1 coming out again?
