On Monday apple released iOS 9.3.2 update for iPad, iPhones and iPads that while claiming to fix a number of bugs, has introduced a new one that is bricking iPad Pros. Soon after the update was released iPad Pro owners with both 12.7 and 9.7  began reporting issues with the update that left their devices completely unusable. Affected users would begin the update process which seemingly installed, but then when their devices restarted they were presented with an Error 56 message and prompted connect to iTunes. However, connecting to iTunes or attempting to restore the device does nothing to fix the iOS 9.3.2 Error 56 problem.

According to Apple Support pages, Error 56 is a hardware problem but there's no clear explanation for what causes the error in the first place. After numerous complaints about the issue on Twitter, Apple discussion forums and other places around the web, Apple finally pulled the update for iPad Pro users Friday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a statement about the reported problems with iOS 9.3.2, Apple shared that the company was working on a fix.

"We're 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'll issue an update as quickly as possible."

For those who have been impacted by the iOS 9.3.2 bug just hang tight, a fix is on the way. for everyone else, waiting before updating may be advisable. I personally updated both my iPhone 6 and iPhone SE with no issues, but if your device is one you must use daily, waiting a short time for the fix to be released is probably best.

As more is learned about the iOS 9.3.2 issue that is bricking iPads, we'll be sure to update this post.
