My partner just got a new iPhone 6 to replace her trusty old iPhone 5 and I was given the task of setting it up and trying to remember her old passwords.
I'd recently set up my own iPad mini 2 as a new device and managed to avoid the dreaded iTunes but this time I set hers up from an icloud backup. ......never again!
What a convoluted affair! I ended up plugging it in to my laptop and after about 3 hours I was pulling my hair out.
What I realized was that icloud is like the iTunes of the airwaves, an enigma, a difficult way of doing a simple task and that I really don't know what icloud actually is.
Anyway, I had to get that off my chest. I'd just set up an HTC one m8 for myself a day before and I got most of it done standing in the queue at MacDonald's!
