Check iCloud Photo Library. As we mentioned, if the iCloud Photo Library is checked, then the photos won't be saved in iCloud Backup. Therefore, navigate to Settings > Your name > iCloud > Photos on your old device. After that, your photos will be backed up in iCloud Backup.
If you disable the Photos feature in iCloud, your photos will not be uploaded to iCloud and thus cannot be restored from iCloud. You can check whether it is enabled by going to Settings > Apple ID > iCloud. If it's not, then the issue “photos didn't restore from iCloud” will occur.
1. You Are Not Using the Same iCloud Account. If your photos are stored in iCloud and you have set up your new iPhone using a new iCloud account, your photos will not be synced from your web iCloud account to your iPhone and so you won't see any of your old iPhone photos on your new iPhone.
If both the devices use different iCloud accounts, your iCloud photos will not be synced with your new iPhone. A simple way to check what iCloud account you use on your iPhone is to open the Settings app and tap on your name. Then, you should see your account ID and you can match it with your other iPhone.
Since you have access to the original device, you can go to Settings > [Your Name] > iCloud and disable iCloud Photos. Then we'd Restart your iPhone and then go back to Settings > [Your Name] > iCloud and re-enable iCloud Photos to push the sync again.
To fix the "photos didn't transfer to new iPhone" issue: Go to the Settings app to check your iCloud account. If it's not the right one, log out and then log in with the correct one. Then turn on iCloud Photos to sync photos across your devices.
If you're backing up your iPhone to iCloud or your computer, your iPhone backup will include Apple Watch data. When you unpair an Apple Watch, your iPhone automatically creates a backup at that moment, and then erases the Apple Watch. This assumes your iPhone is in range at that time — and so please do make sure it is!
More times than not, what's happening is that you do not have enough storage space left on iCloud. You do have a limited amount of space unless you're paying for unlimited storage through iCloud as part of your monthly phone bill.
Most people will hit their device storage limit due to iCloud Photo Library automatically backing up photos, while backups from old iPhones and iPads can also consume a large amount of storage space if you never delete them.
When it's enabled, your device will automatically back up data every 24-hours when it is plugged in to a power source and connected to wi-fi.

Fix 2: Make sure there is space in iCloud If the iPad will not backup to iCloud, then go to the iCloud Settings > Storage feature on your iPad. From here, you can check if you have enough space in your iCloud to begin with.
