Restoring from iCloud? Prepare for POPUP HELL!
January 16, 2012
I just restored my phone from an iCloud backup, and boy… this sure is a sweet feature!
What wasn’t so sweet was the number of popups I had to click through once the phone had rebooted from the restore - I counted to more than 20 popups asking me for passwords, lock codes, confirmations and general “you need to know this” information dialogues. That’s not cool Apple, not cool at all. Here’s my suggestion of how to fix this:
- Cache my freaking Apple ID credentials once I’ve entered them. Seriously, it’s still me using the phone 5 seconds later.
- NEVER EVER EVER EVER interrupt a two step lock code setup with another popup in between the first and second entry of the new lock code, ok?
Ok, I just had to get that out of my system. Back to real life.
