It is common to upgrade your iOS devices. After iOS 9 upgrade, there are more new features coming. Actually, most iOS 9 users would be convinced by the saying "No data or media will be deleted" and felt assured to reset all settings without iTunes or iCloud backup. However, the "Reset All Settings" option in iOS 9 proves to be a serious bug that causes losing all iWork documents stored in iCloud Drive including Pages, Keynote and Numbers.
