    factory reset on my ipad air 10th Jun 17 at 7:31 AM
    I'm planning on doing a factory reset on my ipad air today. I've had it for 3+ years and it's starting to do the occasional odd thing and itunes has stopped syncing (i've tried the tips that Apple recommend to resolve but no joy).

    I've written down a list of all the apps I have on it and all the photos are on icloud- not that there are any important ones- is there anything else I need to do before hitting reset?

    You can back up via iCloud (when you've plugged it into the mains) and the device is connected to WiFi and locked and also via iTunes (via USB) if you'd like to restore from a backup when going through the initial set up process?

    Sadly I can't, hence the problem, as it just says that iTunes has failed to sync.
