Cannot Restore iPhone or iPad from iCloud Backup? Check out the Tips for Getting Rid of the Logjam

Restore Process Taking A lot of Time

If the restore process is taking a lot of time, keep your iOS device connected to a reliable Wi-Fi network and a functional power source until the process is completed. The time it takes depends on two important things: the speed of your Wi-Fi and the size of your backup.

The Process is Incomplete Or Some Items Won’t Restore

If you see a message saying your restore is incomplete or some item won’t restore, you might have disconnected your device from Wi-Fi during the restore process, and as a result, some of your apps or content couldn’t be restored. You will need to reconnect your device to Wi-Fi and go through the process all over again.

Restoring 150 of 675 Items…

If the message reads something like “Restoring 150 of 675 items.” That means your images are currently being restored. Have patience and let the process be completed peacefully.

Apps Are Grayed Out or They Are Not Loading At All

If you find your apps grayed out or they are taking a lot of time to load, that means they haven’t loaded up properly. Connect your device to Wi-Fi and then tap the app to pause the process. Wait for a few seconds and then tap it again to continue.

If the apps are still grayed out, delete and reinstall them. Just tap and hold the app and when it starts wiggling, tap on the “X.” Then, tap on Delete to confirm. Next, head over to App Store and re-download the apps you just uninstalled.

iCloud Asking You to Sign In with Multiple Apple IDs

If your backup contains purchases that were made from more than one Apple IDs, you will get messages to sign in with multiple Apple IDs. If you can’t remember a password or didn’t purchase an app using your own Apple ID account, you might see this message:

“Some apps or content can’t be restored, because they are no longer available in the iTunes or App Store, was purchased with a different account, or were synced from your computer.”

Just in case you have saved this content in iTunes on your Mac or PC, connect your device to the computer, open iTunes and then syncing your device to restore the content.

Your Last backup couldn’t be completed

If you get a message saying that your last backup was not completed, it may have happened due to a poor Internet connection.

Ensure that you are connected to Wi-Fi. Then, launch the Settings app on your iOS device → [your name] → iCloud → iCloud Backup and then select Back Up Now and start the process all over again.

Note: If your device is running iOS 10.2 or earlier,  head over to Settings → iCloud → Backup and tap Back Up Now.)
