    I've been trying to restore my iPhone from a icloud backup for pretty much the entire day. I did a reset on the entire phone because i was having battery issues with it. Laptop crashed trying to restore it & wifi isn't much help either. Any suggestions on what else i could do ?

    You might as well set it up as new especially if trying to restore the iCloud backup is causing your laptop to crash. At least you'll be able to use your iPhone. Alternatively, you can try a wired connection to the Internet instead of using Wi-Fi.

    In my experience sometimes you have to wait it out. I would recommend starting the restore and letting your device sit while plugged in for a couple hours.

    If you were having battery issues, you should restore as new. You may be restoring the problem back with the back up.

    What battery issues?

    Sometimes I have had to reboot an iPhone once or twice during an iCloud restore when it seems to get stuck, hold the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo

    Thank u guys, I finally fixed it. I tried the iCloud restore again on a better wifi connection & left the phone alone for a few hours. It's finally done restoring everything
