Apple has pulled the iOS 9.3.2 update for the 9.7” iPad Pro and is working on a fix, according to a tweet from Rene Ritchie of iMore. A report earlier today at MacRumors noted that they have received a number of reports that the update has been causing an “Error 56” message on some 9.7” iPad Pro devices, although not all iPad Pro users are impacted by the problem and the larger 12.9” iPad Pro also appears to be unaffected. Users who have encountered the problem have found their devices rendered unusable. Users are prompted to plug their devices into iTunes to restore, however, an iTunes restore does not fix the problem, leaving the affected iPad Pro devices bricked. MacRumors notes that they have heard several reports that Apple is replacing iPad Pro devices that have been bricked by the update as no other fix is available for the problem. Users who have not updated to iOS 9.3.2 should see iOS 9.3.1 as the latest version available; other iOS devices appear to be unaffected and the update remains available for all other models.
