Performing a factory reset or clearing the cache partition after a software update is highly recommended to ensure a smooth and efficient experience with the updated software. 

A factory reset restores your device to its original settings, eliminating any conflicts or compatibility issues that may arise from residual files or incompatible settings. It is essential to back up your data before initiating a factory reset to prevent any loss of important information

If you are hesitant to perform a factory reset, clearing the cache partition is a less intrusive option

This process removes temporary files and data that can accumulate and become outdated, potentially causing performance issues or app malfunctions. Clearing the cache partition helps optimize performance, improve system stability, and address compatibility issues without deleting personal data or settings. It is a recommended step to ensure your device functions optimally after a software update.

Hi,
Don't you think, factory reset will take your device back to previous software version. Then there is no meaning of updating the device and performing factory reset.
However, wiping cache partition is highly recommend after every update. Even I do advise many times to samsung members.

Factory reset never takes your software to previous version

I didn't mention anywhere that a factory reset doesn't bring back the old version.

Yes, there is two choice. clearing cache partition only delete some temporary files and corrupted cache files. factory reset will give fresh system experience,
While these actions can be beneficial in some cases, they are not always necessary after a software update.Most users can simply install the update and continue using their devices without any issues.
