Restore iPhone/iPad from iCloud Backup

Have you ever restore iCloud backup to get back lost data on your iPhone/iPad? Or, just want to merge data from iCloud to your new iOS device? With 5GB of free storage, iCloud seems to be the first choice of most iOS users to back up, restore or recover data wirelessly. You simply go to Settings > General > Reset, and tap “Erase All Content and Settings.” on your iPhone/iPad, choose the most relevant backup file to restore after tapping “Restore from iCloud Backup” and signing in to iCloud on the Apps & Data screen.

But frankly, don’t you feel it’s a little bit inconvenient to restore from iCloud backup?

Considering flaws of restoring from iCloud backup directly, some iPhone users turn to iCloud.com when recovering data. You can go to website www.icloud.com and enter in your Apple ID and password.

iCloud.com is another option to restore your iPhone data, but the data on it is not as complete as an iCloud backup. You can only access data types like Mail, Contacts, and Photos etc and download it to your desktop. If you need your WhatsApp, Kik or LINE messages, I’m afraid that iCloud.com cannot help you.
