    Today I was playing Minecraft Pocket Edition for the first time in a very long time(I have hardly ever played Minecraft, maybe a total of 15 hours and I have had it for like 1 1/2 yrs). I realized that I had some worlds on my iPod that I wanted to transfer over, but with no way to do so other than using third-party software. I went ahead and downloaded iFunBox, which was a recomendation a lot of people had to transfer saved games. After I installed it from the official source (not some third party shady website) it proceeded to install some extra bloatware that I didn't need and it was trying to scan my computer, check files, that kind of stuff, but I didn't notice because it was in the background. Anyway, after transfering a world over to my iPad, I started to worry like I always do. I closed iFunBox, only to see the 3 extra bloatware apps running (thankfully they barely started, so they hadn't had a chance to do anything).

    This started to worry me al little, so I searched it up on Google to see if it is safe (AFTER I downloaded it, not too smart) and I saw a page on Apple support communities about how it can access a bunch of stuff in your device without you knowing it. I got a little paranoid at this point, so I went and erased everything on my iPad and restored from an iCloud Backup. Restored everything I had, including all of my accounts(already logged in to all of them, except 1), restored my games, all of my apps, everything. I am so glad I have been using iCloud, it's an awesome service!

    The first time you restore from iCloud you come to realize how efficient and spot on it really is.

    I've never had to wipe and restore. If I needed to, how exactly would I get my iCloud back up back on my phone? Is it done by just signing back in to iCloud? Will a restore option show?

    You're given the option to restore via iCloud or iTunes shortly after you are greeted with the welcome screen.

    I see. So I would not need to connect to a computer to restore from iCloud?

    Yeah, it restored everything. I expected it to not get everything right, such as leaving a couple apps out of maybe a picture or two, but it restored it all
