Thanks, I wanted to make sure that my operating system updates were still
there and I didn't have to buy them again or install them again.

Cheers, Karen

If you do a factory restore on any Apple device, your data can be erased but
the updates you applied will remain. They are operating system updates. They
become a part of the system image used to restore.

I have two Apple devices that I need to remove all my stuff from but not the
upgrades from Leopard to Lion and then Mountain Lion.

If I restore to factory defaults how can I update the devices again to
Mountain Lion? Or, if I use Erase Content and Settings will this remove all
my stuff and leave the iOS upgrades and updates intact?

The Apple website doesn't seem to answer this question but did give
information on the erase content and settings.

Cheers, Karen
