Whats the purpose tho?

Some one said it can reduce the chance of game crash, which I am experience on that recently.

I think it helps so thats why I do it

sometimes lol

I’ve never crashed so I don’t know if it works. It shouldn’t hurt.

My device recently crashed when I was almost on final on a flight from KEWR-WSSS

Thats rough. 19+ hours just for that.

Yeah :/

Occasionally. The user guide says it may help reduce the chance of an app-crash (as it closes all other external phone tasks from other programs)

Well not all the time. But say your device tends to crash when you do a long flight (mine doesnt) when you reset the device it just helps to clear everything up.

I dont really think it matters. I mean after 20.1 i did a 14 hour flight with the A350 using an IPAD MINI 2!

I do, usually every week or 2

Well yes that’s true but I only do it when I’m on a device that can’t really handle it. My iPad can handle it so I don’t do it that often to save time:)

Mine crashed when I was like half an hour away from landing from a London to Sydney flight. So yes, my iPad does crash sometimes, but not often

After the days of when IF used to crash for me after every long haul flight when the A350 came out. The Devs recommend it, and it’s been something I have kept doing beyond. Have never had the game crash for a while now.

But I turn it off after EVERY flight, just something I do, and I believe it helps your device rest, and reset itself!

In the 5 years ive used IF I’ve never restarted my device before any flight and the app has never crashed on me. (hope I don’t jinx myself here)
