My wife got herself a new iPhone today, and she is using the iCloud backup thing. After the restore had completed, we realize several things are not there - notably the off-line copies of content from her audio book service. Yes, it can be re-downloaded, but she used this mechanism as her queue, and there is no indication of any prior downloads.
Are there limits to what gets backed up and/or restored? I have no issue with subscription content requiring a fresh login and authentication on the new device, but to simply exclude data from a backup rubs me the wrong way. A full backup should provide a restore of all files, right?
If we had gone for the traditional iTunes backup to a Mac, would the same excludes be in effect?
What am I missing here?
