I guess you have to select on the device to do a restore then it will let you see your backups? If you do select restore is it wiping the device clean then applying your backup?
I just think it would make sense if you could go on icloud and see a list of your backups by date, instead of just trusting that they are there then when it comes to use them you find out nothing is there.
I agree it would be nice to see them online.
And I understand what you're saying now. It certainly WOULD be easier to just hit a certain restore date and have it go.
That being said, I never have to restore my phone unless I am forced to wipe/restore as with a completely new iOS. in that case it just installs the OS and I go through the iCloud process from there.
