Normally All Backup file size is in Gigabytes of Data. So Apple Allows restoring the iCloud backup file to your iPhone using WiFi internet connection mode. Also, we need stable and stone internet signals that prevent from terminating the process itself and showing errors like iCloud Restore Failed.

The Speed of restoring a backup from iCloud depends on how fast is your internet connection. If the internet service is slow, then it will take quite more time to restore big files. In such a case, you should have patience because it will take time to restore. I would suggest you should have the fastest connection while restoring a backup from iCloud and stay close to the network router. By following this, you won’t face iCloud restore failed after update.

Solution 2: Check iCloud Backup

You might get an error like the last backup can’t be completed. To troubleshoot this problem, you should follow some points. The first one is the iPhone must be connected to the good Wi-Fi network and if you are already connected with a strong signal then follow the steps.

Step 1: In the “Settings” app, tap on your Profile Name.
Step 2: Click on “iCloud” and Scroll to “Backup“. Here’s the time when your last backup is taken on from the device.

If this isn’t helpful for you, then try the next step.

Solution 3: Verify Your Apple ID

The first check on your mobile, is there any pending Apple ID verification under the settings app, Apple ID is one of the necessary factors that you should know while restoring a backup from iCloud. Or else if you receive a message like sign in with multiple IDs then don’t get panic. Somehow Logout Apple ID for iCloud and login Apple ID also works. So First Go to the Settings App > Profile name > Sign Out. hard Reboot your iPhone and Sign in again, Go to the Settings app > Sign in with Apple ID [Where is Profile name].

Because it might be a reason that you have purchased music tracks, movies, or apps with different Apple IDs. Make sure that all of your Apple ID gets verified.

This policy of Apple prevents your data safe and allow the only owner to restore the data.

Solution 4: Check Storage of your iPhone

In this busy life, people download stuff and do not delete them even it is of no use. However, this can lead to a huge problem like the device gets slow, will not respond, and the one which you are facing currently.

Cleaning junk files and waste files can make a certain amount of free space which can be used further, and you will not face storage-related problems.

: Go to “Settings” and open “General” > iPhone Storage > Check Available Free Space.

Or Old iOS is not compatible with Backup file, I recommend Clean Restore Backup on iPhone/iPad. To Erase the Data and Settings, Go to the Settings app on iPhone > General > Reset > Reset All Content and Settings.

After you’re erased completely, startup screen show restores data from iCloud, Select it and follow the onscreen instruction on iPhone/iPad.
