Apple Pulls the iOS 9.3.2 Software Update That's Bricking 9.7-inch iPad Pros

Posted May 20, 2016 at 5:35pm by iClarified
Apple has pulled the iOS 9.3.2 software update for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro which appears to be bricking select devices, reports MacRumors.

Apple yesterday pulled the iOS 9.3.2 update. 9.7-inch iPad Pro users who have not installed iOS 9.3.2 no longer see the update, with iOS 9.3.1 now listed as the most current version of iOS 9 available for download.

Shortly after the release of iOS 9.3.2 some users began reporting an "Error 56" message that instructed them to plug their device into iTunes. Apparently, for those affected, the issue is so severe that Apple is replacing devices that have encountered the bug.


If you've run into the problem, contact Apple Support for assistance. The company is looking into the issue but has yet to provide any information as to the cause.

ex android engineers? If this was the case, iOS would have gestures like android, be unsecured like it, and have icons styled like it.

What?!?! Why would they make the same mistake again they made while at Android? I'm sure they've learned and now are polished enough to start at iOS. So no, they're not fabricating the same crappy os they did before. They're grown up now.

Found a workaround to regain access, all you have to do is -/:;())&@""@&$)(;:/- and use the USB with the old version of pangu

It's your fault you immediately updated and not even mailed what you written down or back up to another device!

When you update through the computer, it backs up the device first. Never do the OTA updates. EVER

And if you do OTA make an iCloud Back up because odds are you'll have enough storage to do so if your OTAing in the first place.

Usually when people like Kevin Barth here have to defend and explain themselves they know in fact they have been owned and incorrect. It's psychological.

That's what you get for not backing up
