Customer Question
I'm trying to download...

I'm trying to download my photos from icloud to my updated phone.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your phone?

Iphone 8 plus

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your iPhone?

11.1.2

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your iPhone? What have you tried so far?

The phone is new, so I have not been able to retrieve from icloud from my previous phone

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Smartphone Expert to know before I connect you?

I had to purchase more storage from icloud prior to backing everything up to icloud. This was done two days ago at the AT&T store.

when I went into Settings and then clicked on icloud, it didn't require me to enter my ID and Password. I was able to click on back up now.
Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 month ago

Awesome that means it was set up but just not synced yet.

is that automatic and how long does that take?
Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 month ago

It takes some time. It can be hours depending on the amount of data it must sync.

I changed phones Saturday, 2 days ago. Does it take that long? I do see the spinning on the phone as if something is happening.
Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 month ago

It depends on the number of pictures, notes etc you have. Again it can take hours depending on the internet connection.
