Nearly three weeks after releasing iOS 9.3.4, Apple has closed the signing window for iOS 9.3.3 and iOS 9.3.2, making it impossible to downgrade from the latest firmware version available to these older ones.
Nearly two weeks after pulling this version for bricking 9.7-inch iPad Pro devices, Apple has released iOS 9.3.2 today, presumably fixing the bricking issue once and for all. Carrying build number 13F72 this iOS 9.3.2 update is specifically for the 9.7-inch version of the iPad Pro. The update is now available both over the air, and as a separate download.
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.
Following multiple complaints that the iOS 9.3.2 software update, which released two days ago, has bricked some 9.7-inch iPad Pro models with ‘Error 56’, Apple today acknowledged that it’s aware of these reports and is “looking” into them.
Although Apple’s statement to iMore does not make it clear whether the company has pinpointed what might be causing this issue, the company did advise those unable to restore their device through iTunes to contact its support team.
It appears that today’s iOS 9.3.2 update is causing problems for some 9.7-inch iPad Pro owners. As noted by MacRumors, a number of users have taken to Twitter and other forums to complain that the firmware bricked their tablets shortly after installing the over-the-air update.
More specifically, users are seeing an “Error 56” message, which instructs you to plug your device into iTunes. According to some of those who have received the error, however, plugging the tablet into your computer and trying to restore through iTunes doesn’t resolve the issue.
Apple on Monday seeded iOS 9.3.2 to the public. The official release follows 4 developer and public betas, and comes about a month and a half after iOS 9.3.1. Those looking to update can do so by navigating to the Settings app > General > Software Update > Install Now, or you can find the full version on our Downloads page.
As we saw in the betas, iOS 9.3.2 doesn’t contain a lot of new features. It’s mostly bug fixes—iPhone SE owners will be glad to hear that this update fixes the Bluetooth accessory issue—and other improvements. One thing users may notice is the ability to use Low Power Mode and Night Shift at the same time. Full change log below.
Apple on Tuesday seeded brand new betas of the iOS, tvOS and OS X operating systems to members of the Apple Developer Program. iOS 9.3.2 beta 4 (build 13F68), tvOS 9.2.1 beta 4 (build 13Y772) and OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 beta 4 are all available for download on devices running earlier betas. Standalone installers can be downloaded through Apple’s Dev Center for developers and are also available for public testing for members of the Apple Beta Software Program.
Apple on Tuesday seeded the third beta of iOS 9.3.2 to developers. The update is available to registered developers either via an over-the-air update, or as a standalone download through Apple’s online developer center.
Today’s release comes just one week after beta 2, suggesting 9.3.2 may soon be ready for launch. From what we’ve seen so far, the update will bring about various under-the-hood improvements, but few user-facing changes.
Apple today seeded the second betas of upcoming iOS and OS X updates to public testers. Folks in the Beta Software Program can now install iOS 9.3.2 via OTA on their iOS devices, and OS X 10.11.5 via the App Store Software Update mechanism.
These are the same betas that Apple pushed out to developers yesterday, along with updates for watchOS and tvOS. They arrive about a month after the public releases of iOS 9.3 and OS X 10.11.4, which brought about several user-facing changes.
The ability to use iOS 9.3’s headlining Night Shift feature when an iPhone is in Low Power Mode has been reinstated in a second beta of iOS 9.3.2 that was seeded to Apple’s registered developers this morning, as noted by eagle-eyed users on Twitter and first reported on by MacRumors.
Night Shift and Low Power Mode worked simultaneously on prior iOS 9.3 betas, but that feature was later removed without explanation in iOS 9.3 beta 4.
Two weeks after Apple released the first beta of iOS 9.3.2 to its registered developers, the company today released iOS 9.3.2 beta 2 to members of the Apple Developer Program. The new beta has a build number and can be applied over-the-air on devices running an iOS 9 beta in Settings → General → Software Update or you can download the full installer from the Apple Developer Center, which requires a paid membership in the Apple Developer Program for full access.
