Apple pulls iOS 9.3.2 for the 9.7" iPad Pro after bricking reports

— 3:41 PM on May 20, 2016

Apple has pulled iOS version 9.3.2 for its 9.7" iPad Pro today after users reported that the update caused their devices to enter an unusable state. iMore's Rene Ritchie shared a Tweet with a statement from Apple that confirms the take-down.

The problem reared its head as early as Tuesday, when Ritchie posted a statement from Apple indicating that iOS 9.3.2 was bricking a "small number" of customer iPads with an "Error 56" message. "Error 56" indicates a hardware error with the device. Affected users are told to attempt an iTunes restore to recover the device, but MacRumors reports that the recovery process enters into a boot loop where the device is never able to restore. Apple says affected users should contact its customer support team for assistance. This issue doesn't appear to affect any other Apple devices aside from the 9.7" iPad Pro.
