    After getting my 6 yesterday, i shut down my iP5 and updated the iP6 from the iCloud backup. Love the phone, however it's still updating from the iCloud backup 24 Hours later. Is this the norm? It's killing my speed running anything. :mad:

    Same here, my restore from my 5S was taking hours and wasn't done this morning even so I did an old fashioned iTunes backup and restore which was done in a matter of an hour! My recommendation would be to do the same.

    Not normal.

    An iTunes backup and restore would be more reliable.

    I had an issue with this. Turns out iMovie was trying to 'update' to a previous version of itself that came preinstalled on the device.

    It might well be that you're in a similar position.

    I think iCloud is a little bit busy right now.

    I have way too much stuff on my phone to do a cloud restore. Always do a FULL backup in iTune and then restore my new phone.

    It took only about 10 minutes for my 6 to be completely restore with everything the 5S had.

    It took about 50 mins for me to restore 7000 pictures, 260 lectures (about one hour each), and 260 apps.

    And that's a big file. try connecting to your router at 2.4ghz and not the 5ghz. people are having issues with 5ghz.

    Wow maybe that was my issue. I was using a 5ghz connection but my speeds were 50mb down. After 15 hours of restoring I stopped it since it seemed to restore everything I needed. I figured it was in a hung state. I had a 9GB backup file to restore and I did switch between 2.4 and 5ghz as well.

    I learned my lesson from iPhone 5 launch that took about 3 hours from iCloud. Used iTunes backup this time.

    iTunes backup is the ONLY way to go unless you have nothing on your phone.

    Gave up yesterday as iCloud went from estimate of 45 minutes to 4 Hours
    Backed up 5 to iTunes with Cable and restored to iPhone 6 in less than an Hour.

    After a few hours when I saw all the apps were updated I rebooted my phone and it went away. I think it's finished but the message just sticks around.

    Thanks for this! It fixed my issue. I started my restore last night and it was still going. After reading this, I noticed Numbers and iMovie were the only apps not downloaded so I deleted them. That instantly fixed the problem.

    I have over 1250 pictures and videos, so my iCloud restore took a long time on my new iPhone as well.
