I was on the phone with Apple’s 1st level support for about 45 minutes this morning, before I finally convinced the woman to transfer me to 2nd level. I explained my issue to 2nd level, and she suggested that I, 1) reinstall iPad OS, or 2) do a clean install by restoring. I was really pressed for time, and had to get off the phone. Then it dawned on me that I didn’t know how to do a re-install of iPadOS! I know how to do a backup & restore, but the 2nd level person suggested that I could also just re-install, without having to do the restore. Searching the internet, I don’t see any instructions for doing so.
Does anyone know how to do a re-install of iPadOS without doing a full backup & restore?
