Restore iCloud Data to Android/iOS

iCloud is one of the most convenient ways to back up our iOS devices. But when we need to restore the iCloud backup to iPhone/iPad/Android devices, you'll find it’s not that convenient anymore. You can only restore the whole iCloud backup during the iOS device setup process, and the iCloud backup cannot be restored to Android devices. So here it comes with iCloud Manager, which enables you to selectively restore any content from iCloud backup to iPhone/iPad/Android devices without affecting the existing data on the device. Find out how to easily restore iCloud backup data to iOS or Android.
