I did a restore from my X to my X max with the latest backup. I have over 150 app and now as its restoring it shows cloud symbols near most of my icons. Sometimes if i tap the icon it will start loading the app. I never turned on or used the "offload unused apps" etc. Do I just need to let it restore?

It means the app was removed from the App Store and is no longer available for download.

Thats not correct It happened to most of my app including facebook, google maps etc.
Oh, ok. I thought this was after it had downloaded everything else. I know on mine the few apps that cloud icon were removed. Lucky I has the backups for some.

That’s why we keep ipa package back in 2016!
Seriously though, I think iPhone is just stuck at restoring. Maybe give it a few more hours or put it overnight and see how it goes. Home internet is usually not good enough to ensure a reliable iCloud restore.
