Class vs Struct

In the video Jason said if an object has a lot of instance variables & methods, it should be a class rather than a struct. Why is this? It seems like structs do the same thing as classes, but without you having to list the instance variables as arguments passed to attr_accessor, as parameters in the initialize method, & twice when setting instance variables in the body of the initialize method. Wouldn’t this mean the more instance variables an object has, the better it is to use a struct rather than a class?
