    Here is one for you guys.

    So my wife upgraded from the 6s to the 7 plus.

    We went to Apple Store. Turned in old one. Got new one. Came home to restore from backup. She backed up the day before to iCloud.

    When we try to restore, it says cannot restore with 1 minute left. We have tried this 5 times. Different backups. Using different wireless networks.

    Any suggestions?

    No.. since there is no back up on the computer in which she can restore. She may just need to set up as a new device and re-download the apps.

    It will show when the last back up was completed for both Cloud and Local, but I don't think you can restore from backup on iTunes from cloud. Maybe I am wrong, I hope I am for your sake.

    I couldn't get my 7 plus to restore properly from back up. It keep stalling. I managed to get it download 81 apps and it did my emails, messages, photos, Apple Watch data, notes and global settings. I re-downloaded the remaining 110 apps manually and used iTunes to transfer my music and videos over.

    The restore OS file needs to be the same as the new OS file. If you updated to 10.0.1 on the S6, then you need to update the new 7 to 10.0.1 before the restore.

    Nothing worked. She just re downloaded all her apps. Sucks.

    On the other hand. I picked up a 7 plus ttoday and restored from the cloud with no issues



    Go figure.
