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.

Is your iPad Pro plagued by this issue?

    What’s going on with these failed releases or is it bigger than it appears? I didn’t update my pro yet but I’m glad I didn’t.

      I think it’s actually smaller than it appears.

      • Rowan09

        Oh ok.

    Every time I use dictation to type a message on my iPhone, it starts a continuous and non-stop ding like when you leave a car door open! It’s a repetition of the one ding right after you press DONE dictating. This started after the 9.3.2 update.

    I hope for iOS 10 Apple really pulls it together, because as of late they have been truly sloppy.

      haha keep dreaming. When Steve Jobs died, so did Crapple!

  • Mark S

    Gee test your updates much? This is why you don’t rush to be the first nerd on the block to have the latest update.

    • XenonKilla

      Yeah tell that to all these lames who have OUD, Obsessive UPDATE Disorder! People just automatically think that just because there is an UPDATE that it means that if they don’t update then they will be missing out on something. In reality though, these days 8 times outa 10 it’s more like a DOWNGRADE than an UPGRADE! SMH
