Apple releases iOS 9.3.2 for 9.7-inch iPad Pro

Apple has released a new version of iOS 9.3.2 specifically for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

We assume this resolves the issue that caused some 9.7-inch iPad Pro untis to become bricked after installing the iOS 9.3.2 update originally.

The new version of iOS 9.3.2, build 13F72, can be downloaded over-the-air (OTA) on any 9.7-inch iPad Pro that has not previously been updated to the latest version of iOS 9.

To update your device wirelessly:

If a message says that an update is available, tap “Install Now.” You can also follow these steps:

1. Plug your device in to power and connect to the Internet with Wi-Fi
2. Tap Settings > General > Software Update
3. Tap Download and Install
4. If asked, enter your passcode

MacDailyNews Take: Good luck, 9.7-inch iPad Pro users!

Open letter to Tim Cook: Apple needs to do better – January 5, 2015


  1. Well I updated my Pro promptly with the 9.3.2 original and….well…no problems since. My local Apple Store had no problems either with their demo machines which is why I followed suit.
    Annoying for some but weird all the same.
    I wonder how unique I am since I have never experienced any of the problems we hear about. Macs, iPhones or iPads – nothing ever bricked. Anyone else?

      1. I don’t disagree. I was an idiot for downloading their update on my pro.

        Don’t you guys do the same now. I don’t trust their updates and neither should you.

        You would think they would test this stuff out, but it’s Cook, so I guess we are the testers.

        1. Well, you were an idiot, you’re still an idiot, and you’ll always be an idiot. Why?

          Check you logic at the front door folks, it’s going to be a rough ride.

          Devices need updates. Bricks happen. To you. Because… Tim Cook. Therefore, no one should ever update any Apple device ever again.

          Ever have an iPhone 3G? Ever update to iOS 4? Some bricked. Under the watch of demigod and übermensch Steve Jobs no less. We should have thrown all these updates out the window THEN and THERE. We’d all be stuck at iPhone 3, with iPhone 3s and 3Gs, but we would have never had another brick!

          See the logic?

          No, jambro. Just no.

          1. Well, peterblood, by your logic Apple’s standards are now down to the level of Microsoft or worse. If “Bricks happen” all the time under any Apple leader, then why bother trusting Apple to be any better than the competition? Why bother updating when Apple commands you to do so? You might as well wait a month for the .1 update that always follows Apple’s buggy releases lately.

            Furthermore, why trust the iCloud? It’s a datamined store with frequent outages and it’s stored on Amazon or Google servers. Since one has to securely backup his data locally anyway, then there’s no benefit to paying the Apple premium prices.

            The days when Apple provided a superior value seem to be gone. You don’t get an objectively better device or OS anymore, you just get an Apple sticker, neutered functionality, ugly GUI, and the approval of the condescending Apple fanboy club. Some of us can do without, thank you very much.

            Some of us would love to be able to update our Macs, but Apple has nothing at all to offer. iOS is a bag of hurt, and Mac OS X hasn’t improved in 7 years. At the prices Apple charges, you’d think there would be some new must-have performance or features. Nope, just more kludged services. Whatever Amazon/Google/Microsoft do, Apple follows.

            Keep cheering as Cook drives Apple off a cliff. When the pros leave, all that will be left are the dumbass consumers who will buy whatever shiny object Apple offers — and that will be a small minority of the market as newer, hungrier, more user-focused competitors move in.
