From what I understand, there aren't any advantages unless the system is somehow broken. Many people switch over from a Microsoft Windows system and assume that, since the iOS device is a computer, they need to migrate old PC habits during the switch.I used to refresh my Windows PCs about every 18 months or so to get them back to their previous performance level, but I haven't done that since I switched to Mac and iPad. It never even occurred to me to wipe and reinstall everything on my iPad, what is the advantage?
I usually get bored or it's because I download a backup from one account jjst for a certain item like I restored Saturday so I could get pictures of me and my mother. Or I may restore to use an old back up of mine for a while then I'll restore to do a fresh install. Or it's because I'm selling the device.You reformat and reinstall every couple of months? Whyever for? Strange lad.
