When I updated to new iOS 7 completed and said few more steps, stopped at Updating iCloud settings and seems stuck there and still working. How long does this take or is there a problem
Hello and thanks for your question. Usually this will take about 5-10 minutes depends on how much data you have on iCloud.I would give it another 5 minutes to finish.If still stuck at the same screen, we will have to reboot the ipad.JACUSTOMER-t28ldv2d- :How do you reboot, turn off and then on? I have already done this once, that is turn off and then on and reach the iCloud update setting screenNickMacExpert :We can do a Hard Reboot.Please press and hold the Power (on/off) button and the Home button at the same time.JACUSTOMER-t28ldv2d- :How does one do a Hard RebootNickMacExpert :Hold them for about 10-12 seconds.You will see the Apple logo comes up.
