Apple Has Pulled iOS 9.3.2 Update For 9.7-inch iPad Pro Following Error 56
Apple has pulled iOS 9.3.2 update for 9.7-inch iPad Pro following reports of bricked units as well as the infamous Error 56.
iOS 9.3.2 Update Has Been Pulled By Apple For 9.7-inch iPad Pro Devices
iOS 9.3.2 download was released earlier this week and was packed with much needed bug fixes, performance related enhancements. And while the update is good news for a lot of users, but at the same time it brought with it a menacing bug that caused the bricking of a handful of 9.7-inch iPad Pro units in the wild.
In order to make sure that the menace doesn't spread forward to even more users, Apple made the big move and pulled iOS 9.3.2 update altogether for those who are in the ownership of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. If you're in the ownership of a device that's other than the aforementioned tablet, then you can still update to iOS 9.3.2 without much fuss or error over the air or via iTunes - that includes the 12.9-inch iPad Pro as well.
Regarding the fiasco, Apple issued the following official statement, as per 9to5Mac:
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.
If you have a 9.7-inch iPad Pro at hand and have stumbled upon Error 56, Apple recommends that you take your tablet straight to Apple Support for further guidance. It should be kept in mind that once you've hit the Error 56 roadblock, then you can't even restore your tablet using DFU mode through iTunes. In short - iOS 9.3.2 is bad news for your iPad Pro and you should stand clear of it until Apple releases the next iOS update.
Regarding the fix Apple has mentioned, it's likely to be a revision of iOS 9.3.2 but will carry a different build number, just like how the company did for iOS 9.3. When will the update be available, you ask? Well, we don't have a solid timeframe. But given how swift Apple is in terms of pushing out timely updates, it's highly likely we might see the fix next week. There's also a possibility Apple might take a while to fix things before signing it off for public release, but keep an eye on next week.
Whenever the fix arrives, we will definitely let our readers know about it. Meanwhile, sit tight, and enjoy your iPad Pro on iOS 9.3.1.
