    Default My iCloud backup seems frozen, should I just reboot?

    Sometimes an iCloud restore can go bonkers on you.......

    If it seems frozen, you can most times get it going again by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time. Make sure that you wait until the Apple logo appears.

    Once the device comes back up it should start restoring the back up again.

    Remember a good ole reboot fixes most Apple related issues if they were to arrise.

    Default Re: My iCloud backup seems frozen, should I just reboot?

    I want to add it might happen to freeze when the backup version is higher than the embedded OS version!

    Eg: Backup version is 7.0.4, device version is 7.0.2, there's a great chance the device freezes...
    Fix: Plug to iTunes and install the update first. Then resume backup.
