Well, this is a bit of a mess.
As of Friday, Apple has effectively pulled the iOS 9.3.2 update for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
The company has promised that a fix is in the works, albeit some users complained that the update effectively “bricked” their tablets in some cases while others were able to install the update without issue.
Upon attempting to install the update, affected iPad Pro units displayed an “Error 56” message, which Apple identifies as a generic hardware effort. Early reports suggested there was no immediate workaround other than taking the tablet to an Apple Store for help or a replacement.
After pulling the update on Friday, Apple issued a statement stating it is working on a fix for the bug, which it claims affected “a small number of iPad units.” The company pledged to deliver a new update “as quickly as possible.”
iOS 9.3.2 launched last Monday and included assorted fixes, including a fix for Night Shift in Low Power mode as well as a bug fix for taking calls via a Bluetooth headset.
