Following an avalanche of complaints from the affected 9.7-inch iPad Pro owners who saw their device bricked and reporting an iTunes error 56 after installing the latest iOS 9.3.2 software update, Apple has now pulled iOS 9.3.2 for that device from its servers. As first noted by MacRumors 9.7-inch iPad Pro owners who have not installed iOS 9.3.2 no longer see the over-the-air update on their tablet.
Responding to ‘Error 56’ complaints, Apple yesterday acknowledged in a statement to media that the software update was causing problems for some iPad Pro devices.
“We’re looking into a small number of reports that some iPad units are receiving an error when updating the software,” an Apple spokesperson said.
Installing the software update over the air would make the device stuck at the ‘Connect to iTunes’ prompt, rendering it unusable because plugging it into a computer to restore via iTunes wouldn’t help. Apple is now advising those unable to restore their device through iTunes to contact their support team.
iOS 9.3.2 released five days ago, on Monday.
