iOS 9.3.2 Causing Some 9.7-Inch iPad Pro Units to Brick Due to ‘Error 56’ Message

iOS 9.3.2 iPad Pro brick

Earlier today, Apple officially released iOS 9.3.2 to the masses, but it looks like some owners of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro are having some issues.

As reported by MacRumors, and citing several different reports from that publication’s message boards, many 9.7-inch iPad Pro owners that upgraded to iOS 9.3.2 are seeing their devices bricked and inaccessible, with an “Error 56” notification. That particular message is telling owners to plug their devices into iTunes to proceed.

Unfortunately, for the folks that are experiencing the issue and have plugged the iPad into their computer to launch iTunes, as instructed by the error message, the fix is not working:

“Mine is bricked. Says it needs to be plugged into iTunes, won’t restore or update, just a big loop. Fantastic. :/”

Apple has a specific error document for Error 56, which states that this particular error message relates to a hardware issue. That document goes on to say that owners should update to the latest version of iOS, try to restore the device twice, and check for issues with third-party security software.

If that doesn’t work, Apple says to contact Apple Support.

Are you experiencing any issues?
