ir a ___ vs future tense conjugations

In school I was always taught when to speak about the future to say things along the lines of "voy a (infinitive)" but now that I'm trying to learn Spanish on my own I'm seeing some sources teaching conjugations for future tense (like comeré) rather than the easier "ir a ___" (voy a comer) and I am wondering if it's necessary to learn the actual conjugations? I've heard that conversationally, the "ir a (infinitive)" is much more common, and if so when are the future tense conjugations usually used?
