Apple Pulls iOS 9.3.2 After Reports of iPad Pro Bricking
Apple has just pulled its iOS update version 9.3.2 for its 9.7″ iPad Pro today due to the fact that this update was resulting in bricking the devices. The update was pulled soon after users reported that their 9.7″ iPad Pro entered a unstable state after they installed iOS 9.3.2. Others Apple devices seem not to be affected by any issue after this update.
This announcement comes from a tweet from Rene Ritchie of iMore, along with an official statement from the company. According to Apple:
We are currently working on a fix for an issue impacting a small number of iPad units that are receiving an error when trying to update the software. We will issue and update as as quickly as possible.
The statement by Apple states that iOS 9.3.2 was bricking some iPad units with an Error 56. This indicates a hardware error in the device, and to resolve this issue, users are to attempt an iTunes restore to recover the device.
However, after this update creates an Error 56 in the iPad, some reported that the recovery process enters in a boot loop, a state in which the device can’t recover. According to the company, affected users should contact Apple’s customer support for assistance.
