    Doing an iCloud restore on my iPhone 7 Plus but it has been ongoing for over a day. Any ideas? Is there anything I can do to expedite it? If I think I have everything should I stop it so I can try doing a new back up?

    Thanks

    1. Has the device been connected to Wi-Fi the entire time?
    2. Do you have a good deal of photos, videos and music to restore to the device?
    3. Are you at least at the lock screen?

    The lock screen comes up every now and again. Using about 10 GB worth of photos

    What do you mean "every now and again"? If the restore is going as it should, your iPhone should function normally while it's restoring your data. Then again, I don't Store nowhere near the amount of photos that you do on my device. Still, it shouldn't take all day to restore if you're connected to a decent Wi-Fi connection and a fast internet connection.

    The lock screen comes up and then when I hit the home button it goes back to showing me how much time is remaining

    That sounds odd "over a day" is a lot of time for a restore. Are you doing it directly from iCloud or iTunes? After restoring settings and such,it should continue doing the restore in the background (apps, pics etc) while letting you use the device freely.

    Try stopping it and start over
