How to restore my iPad Air 2 with IOS 8.4 to my backup on iCloud?


iMore Question

Last evening, I used the Backup to iCloud function and received the notification that the backup had occurred at 20.02

Now about 23 hours later, I need to restore my iPad Air 2 to the backed up version of last evening.

I can't find any way to do this. Being new to IOS 8.4, I don't know where to find the necessary Restore from iCloud function.

Can you please help?

You will need to go to Settings - General - Reset and then select "Erase All Contents and Settings. When the process is complete, you will be greeted with the Welcome screen. After entering the preferred language, you will be prompted to restore from a backup. Select 'iCloud'.
