    Guys so i had restored for maybe more than 10 times now for some issues i had and hopefully were solved.

    I want to know if by factory restoring/resetting it could damage the OS?

    Why would you think that? All a restore does is extract the OS and replace it with a fresh install of the latest OS version. No damaging takes place whatsoever.

    I'm curious what the issues were. There might be a less instrusive fix.

    Throughout my 4 years of owning iDevices I have probably restored more than 50+ times and it has never caused any from of "damage" to them.

    No, No, No, Nope. Very safe to keep restoring. Restore all day if you like.

    Excessive battery consumption, for the most part completely normal.

    Restoring wont hurt anything but there is the rare chance the os can be corrupted. Usually another restore will fix it. I've only read one time when the device is bricked.
