9.7-Inch iPad Pros Bricked With An Error 56 Message
iOS 9.3.2 does not include any outward-facing features that might interest users. However, if your iOS device is acting strange in terms of any sluggish behavior, maybe updating to the latest firmware will do the trick. Nonetheless, if you’re a 9.7-inch iPad Pro owner and you still haven’t updated to iOS 9.3.2 then beware of bricking your device, resist the upgrade for a while until the issue is resolved.
iPad Pro owners are experiencing “Error 56” notification after updating to iOS 9.3.2, making their device absolutely inaccessible for use. The specific error 56 message requests a user to plug in their devices into iTunes to proceed further. Moreover, when users tried plugging in their device to a computer and connected to iTunes, the error did not respond any further.
“Mine is bricked. Says it needs to be plugged into iTunes, won’t restore or update, just a big loop. Fantastic. :/”
Judging by the crowded forums and social networks, it seems that the problem is widely spread. Attempting to resolve the issue through the restoration process has no affect on the condition. Apple already has an error code support document for the matter and it says that the error 56 is related to a specific hardware issue. Furthermore, Apple’s document recommends users to install the latest version of iTunes and checking for issues with a third-party security software. After that, users must try and attempt to restore again. If the problem still persists, Apple further recommends users to contact Apple support.
If there isn’t a readily fix available for the Error 56, Apple will surely release a new updated version of iOS 9.3.2, which will most probably solve the issue.
