Sure if you back them up to an external HDD. After the system re-install, you can use Migration Assistant to move those essential files/apps back onto your Mac.64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

You could but I suggest you go get an ex-hdd as you will need one to implement your back-up plan. You do have a back-up plan don't you ? If not then before you do anything I suggest you follow and read the links below.

The last link is great and does include the 1st 4 links but just incase I included them.
I hope it helps
