Ipad Air restore off Icloud backup. How do I know if my apps are taking too long in the "waitting" part of the reboot?

For some reason my Ipad Air decided it wanted to create used space on it's hard-drive today. It suddenly went from using 7GB to 11.5 GB. I couldn't find the solution so I decided to restore my Ipad from a backup last Thursday. Now all my apps appear but it is taking forever to download them, it wont change from waiting to downloading?
Suggestions?
My main question is, how long does it take in each process till backup is 100% Complete its downloading around 7GB of storage, when will my apps stop "waiting"

Your camera roll photos - those that you take with the iPad or save from emails and websites - are in your backup.
If you use iCloud for backups, restore from your iCloud backup after you restore the iPad. If you restore with iTunes, restore from that backup after you restore the iPad. You can read more here.

But the bottom line is that if you have never backed up, there is no way to save the photos now.

  • HT4859 how to restore from icloud backup

    how can i restore from icloud backup....my manual back up in itunes keeps giving me a blank device w/factory apps

    Restoring to an iCloud backup has to be done in the initial setup process.  If you have any data on your iPod now that is not in the backup that you want to save you'll need to do that first.  Then go to Settings>General>Reset and tap Erase All Content and Settings.  You will then go through the setup screens as you did when the phone was new. When given the option, choose Restore from iCloud Backup (see image below).  Be sure you are connected to wifi and your charger as this will take some time to finish.

  • Backups taking too long

    My Time Capsule backups are taking too long. Time Machine says it is indexing. However, I have had my Time Machine configured since I installed Lion last year and it has been making automatic backups every hour since. Why is it 'indexing' now, and why is it taking so long?
    Thank you

  • How can i recover my photos if i restored my phone but turned off icloud backup?

    how can i recover my photos if i restored my phone but turned off icloud backup?

    Do you have any backup at all for your device? If you do, then you can restore from that backup and get any photos that were on it. If you have imported your photos to your computer, you can sync them back to your device via an iTunes sync. If you had Photo Stream turned on, you can recover your Photo Stream for the last 30 days or 1000 photos on that Photo Stream (whichever comes first) by signing onto the iCloud account that the Photo Stream was turned on for.

  • I had my iPad 2 replaced by Apple today. All my backup was iCloud and so proceeded to restore from iCloud backup point but couldn't proceed as the new iPad needed iOS 7. How can I get I get around this?

    I had my iPad 2 replaced by Applestore today. On the new iPad I tried to restore from iCloud backup point but was told I was unable to do this as the new iPad needed to have the latest running system iOS 7 loaded. Is there a way I can do this so I can get my iCloud backup or do I need to go back to Applestore and get an iPad preloaded with iOS 7?

    If you feel comfortable you can do the Update to iOS 7 yourself and after you have successfully done that... then Restore your iCloud Back Up.
    If you are not comfortable in doing it yourself... Then go back to the Apple Store and get them to do it.
    They will be Happy to assist you.

  • Ipod reset to old setting with old icloud ID.  How do I reset it to use new login for icloud and then restore from icloud backup

    My upgrade to iOS 8 failed and I had to restore my iPad from an old backup (since restoring from cloud wasn't given as an option).
    Now the iPad has my old iCloud account configured instead of the one I've been using for the past year or so.  How do I:
    1. Get the iPad to use the correct iCloud account?
    2. Restore the iPad from an iCloud backup?
    Everytime I try to log out of iCloud it prompts me for the password on the old account to allow me to turn off "Find my iPad".  I don't think that account even exists anymore.  I tried to reset the password on the old account (using an old email address), but the password email never arrives.
    Help!

    Make sure you are signed into iMessage and FaceTime with your current ID.  If they are signed into the old ID, go to Settings>Messages>Send & Receive and Settings>FaceTime, tap the ID, sign out, then sign back in with your current ID.
    Then temporarily recreate the old ID by going to https://appleid.apple.com, click Manage my Apple ID and sign in with your current iCloud ID.  Click edit next to the primary email account, change it back to your old email address and save the change.  (You should not have to verify the old email account so it doesn’t matter if you no longer have access to it.)  Now go to Settings>iCloud, turn off Find My iDevice and enter your current password when prompted (even though it prompts you for the password for your old ID).  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Sign Out (or Delete Account if you are not running iOS 8) and choose Delete from My iDevice when prompted (your iCloud data will still be in iCloud).  Next, go back to https://appleid.apple.com and change your primary email address back to the way it was.  Now you can go to Settings>iCloud and sign back in with your current iCloud ID and password (your data will download back to your device).
    If you need to restore an iCloud backup, it's explained here: iCloud: Restore your iOS device from iCloud.

  • I got a new iphone 6.  When I restore my phone from my icloud backup my most recent photos and messages not restored from icloud backup.  How do I get the most recent backup onto my new phone?

    I got a new iphone 6.  When I restore my phone from my icloud backup my most recent photos and messages not restored from icloud backup.  How do I get the most recent backup onto my new phone?

    Hello, Anita.  
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities.  
    I understand that you are wanting to restore your new iPhone 6 from an iPhone 5 backup.  This sounds like the iOS version of your old iPhone 5 may be newer than what was installed on your iPhone 6.  Try going through the steps in the article below.  
    iOS: Unable to restore from backup of a newer device
    I would also check to see the backup dates in iTunes and if the  backup is located on iCloud instead of iTunes.  
    Back up and restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using iCloud or iTunes

  • HT1766 I had a new handset delivered today due to my old one being damaged. As I went to restore from iCloud backup it is telling me I can't due to the handset not having iOS 7.1. How can resolve this issue?

    I had a new handset delivered today due to my old one being damaged. As I went to restore from iCloud backup it is telling me I can't due to the handset not having iOS 7.1. How can I resolve this issue?
    Could I select 'Set up as New IPhone' and then update to iOS 7.1 and then proceed to restore the phone from my most recent iCloud  backup ?
    Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.

    Hi again razmee209!
    It has been updating since your last message and it says there's another 6 hours to go, does this sound right or is there a possibility I've been sent a re-con and the update will slow down my new handset considerably?!

    you are using I tunes as the middle man for this back up, right?
    When you plug in the pad to i tunes, give it a unique name, like my pad.  I tune may be thinking it is talking to your phone.  It will keep track of what you what on each device.  Then plug your phone back in, and make sure your photos are uploaded to the computer - in i photo if you are using a mac, or in whatever photo program you are using on a windows device.  You also want to make sure you have uploaded to the computer all of your music.
    Once you get all that stuff there, plug the pad back in, and go through each of the tabs - selecting the music, photos etal that you want on the pad, then resync.
