Don’t update your iPad Pro to iOS 9.3.2 just yet – Users reporting “bricked” iPads

iOS 9.3.2 started to roll out earlier this week for iOS devices, but you may want to hold off for a bit if you own the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Some users are reporting issues with the software, noting that it leaves their devices unusable while reporting an “error 56” message.

Some readers in the MacRumors forums reported receiving an error message asking them to plug their iPads into iTunes after applying the update. One users claims his or her iPad is “bricked” noting that “it needs to be plugged into iTunes, won’t restore or update, just a big loop.” Another user said his or her iPad is “definitely screwed up now!” One user who upgraded from iOS 9.3.2 beta 4 to the final version had no issues, however, so it doesn’t seem to affect everyone. MacRumors noted that error 56 is related to hardware issues, though clearly something with the latest software release is causing the problem.

In a statement to iMore, Apple said that it’s “looking into a small number of reports that some iPad units are receiving an error when updating the software” and that users who run into issues should contact Apple support.
