Dave and Warren both received their iPhone 12 Pro Max Dave has a Pacific Blue 256GB and Warren a Silver 256GB. We give our first impressions with its performance and new features including the new camera. 

Dave had quite the ordeal trying to restore his backup to the new iPhone 12 Pro Max as it seemed his back up was corrupt after hours of trying and it also would not restore iPhone to iPhone. So he decided to just set it up manually and signed into his iCloud account. He wanted to delete the backup and it would not allow that. He reviews this.

Turned out Apple had locked the backup for 48 hours and it took 1 hour talking to Apple Support 

We discuss the back up process and how to restore your iPhone when failure occurs
