    got my new iphone 6s Plus. I updated the phone to 9.0.1 then reset the device and began to restore my phone from an encrypted backup from my iphone 6 and it has been stuck on updating icloud settings for about 20 mins. is this normal?

    Mine took so long that I got annoyed and ejected the phone from iTunes then powered it off. When I turned it back on and completed the set up again, it went to that updating iCloud settings for about 20 secs and then my phone came on with all of my settings.

    hey thanks.. Ya it was brutal, I did a hard reset and restored it via itunes. instead of restoring straight from start up screen, this time i hit set up as new iphone, then i plugged into itunes and did the restore. this seemed to work

    Yes that's what I did. I didn't plug it up until it was open. It went back to that screen for a few and then I was done. Hang in there.

    I had the same experience. I was restoring from an encrypted backup around 11:30 AM Eastern time. I figured a lot of people must have been setting up at the same time. My password for iCloud was not accepted on the 6s Plus, the 6, or my iPad Air2. About 45 minutes later it finally took and was done shortly after.

    I had this problem with 9.1 beta - All i did was restart the phone, when it asked for my iCloud password, i SKIPPED it.. it updated the settings and let me into the phone - Then it verified the settings after. Try that
