    Unhappy icloud Restore???

    I was told by Apple to reset my phone to factory settings as i had a software problem which caused my 4S to switch off when the battery was at 20% They said not to restore from a back up as the problem would be restored aswell. So instead I restored from icloud. Does icloud restore settings? I want to know if the problem will be saved in the icloud backup.

    Yes, iCloud backup will restore all settings but only if you have used an Unlock Code for your device.

    This is what is backed up by iCloud. Please read this article from Apple support:

    Please note that restoring from iCloud is also restoring from a backup (iCloud backup). The Apple representative was most likely telling you to set your device up as new including re-downloading your apps, reconfiguring your email & social accounts, etcetera just like you did when you first purchased your device.

    ^^^ Yeah backing up your info on the computer and also in icloud are the same things. If you restored from either backup, you would be restoring the corrupted settings.
