“Apple has today pulled iOS 9.3.2 for the 9.7 inch iPad Pro, following reports that users were seeing their iPads bricked after updating to the latest iOS release on Monday,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac. “The bug does not affect the larger, 12.9 inch iPad Pro.”
“After updating, users seeing the bug would be prompted to Connect to iTunes on the iPad display,” Mayo reports. “However, aside from an Error 56 debug message, the device could not be restored through iTunes or DFU.”
“We have heard a few reports that Apple will replace the iPad Pro at the Genius Bar with new hardware, if bricked by Error 56,” Mayo reports. “This is the latest public comment from Apple, as of yesterday. ‘We’re looking into a small number of reports that some iPad units are receiving an error when updating the software. Those unable to restore their device through iTunes should contact Apple support.'”
