WARNING: iOS 9.3.2 Update is Reportedly Bricking Some 9.7-inch iPad Pro Devices

Posted May 16, 2016 at 9:11pm by iClarified
The new iOS 9.3.2 firmware update just released by Apple is reportedly bricking some 9.7-inch iPad Pro devices.

Users are shown an "Error 56" message that instructs them to plug their devices into iTunes, according to MacRumors.

Surf Monkey: "Bricked my iPad Pro 9.7 inch. Be careful."
NewtypeCJ: Mine is bricked. Says it needs to be plugged into iTunes, won't restore or update, just a big loop. Fantastic. :\
dwmreg: My iPad Pro 9.7" is definitely screwed up now! ... Apple definitely sucks. My device is bricked and I cannot get my iPad Pro in the store and to a Genius Bar appt. until Wednesday afternoon!

Let us know if you've experienced any issues with updating your iPad Pro. We'd suggest trying a DFU mode restore for those who have run into problems.

And so Apple recalled the 9.3.2 update apparantly. You'd wish they did a bit more thorough testing before releasing. Including the latest models ;-)

I encountered error 4005 on my iPad2 during update from my PC running iTunes. I rebooted the PC and also the iPad, and was successful in getting past the "connect to iTunes" message.

mine just fine on the iphone but the reboot speed is slower than the 9.3.1

Updated overnight and its fine. No worries here.

Bricked.. Nothing works... Thank you for not to be able to finish my work

Does it affect the iPad Air 2? I'm afraid to update that one. My iPhone insolence of for the crashing parts where the apps just suddenly crash and close on their own. Whatever.

Since 9.3.2 was supposed to fix some issue with BT I decided to load it. Since then I get frequent messages about entering a region with Null iBeacon. Anyone else suffering the same?

Just Curious those that have "Bricked" were the iPads Jailbroken prior to the Update??

9.3.2 just messed up my iPad Mini 3 and is currently downloading 1.9GB "software update" to restore it from recovery mode. WTF ???
OhBrother - May 17, 2016 at 2:46am
Three words: It. Just. Works.

Stop getting a boner Everytime an update comes out. This is what you get.

Vision of Apple by Tim Cook :-( he must left Apple immediately
gamerscul9870 - May 17, 2016 at 2:14am
Tim Cook has been at this for 5 years, Apple still growing strong, and now you think you can just flat out claim that over one tiny flaw update when people are able to downgrade currently!?

It doesn't brink the IPad pro. the files are large and it takes bit longer than usual to install the files. During the second stages of installing, it will look like it's just sitting there but it's really installing the files. If you shut it off because you panic, then you will brick it. You will brick anything you stop half way into installing anything.

Hello 9.3.3........
AverageReviewer - May 16, 2016 at 10:04pm
Couldn't they just put it into DFU mode again and then restore to a previous version of iOS considering they're still signing 9.3.1?
odedoo1 - May 16, 2016 at 9:28pm
9.3.1 should be open for at least another week so what their problem? Downgrade till Apple comes out with a fix.
Jake - May 16, 2016 at 9:58pm
That's what I'm saying, seriously these guys...

True, but we must admit that it seems like every single software upgrade over the last couple months has some sort of issue. Maybe prior to Steve's death, everybody was just so scared to disappoint him that they got it right. Opinions?
Stevenk - May 17, 2016 at 1:07am
Dude, seriously? I understand your devoted love and blind faith for apple. But this is no way justified. Whether someone can restore back to 9.3.1 or not is besides the question. A user after draining 500 +$ on a device shouldnt have to go through the pain of bricking it and trying to restore it back to 9.3.1. You understand that simple fact dont you? Besides, not everyone maybe brave enough to do it or even understand what is DFU mode and how to get in and out of it.
dkdk - May 17, 2016 at 4:28pm
Besides, not everyone has a computer... some people only have the iOS devices, and can't restore if it's bricked. Duh.
