Apple pulls another iOS 9 update after iPad Pro bricking woes

Another iOS 9 update, another problem for iOS 9 users.

Apple has pulled the most recent iOS 9.3.2 update, MacRumors reports, after it bricked some iPad Pro 9.7-inch owners’ devices

The so-called Error 56, experienced by those rocking the newer, more compact iPad Pro, had appeared immediately after downloading the update, which arrived earlier this week.

The flaw had placed the iPads into Restore mode, with users unable to rouse the tablet even when performing the restore through iTunes.

On Wednesday, Apple acknowledged the problem, claiming it is looking in to the issue, but has now taken the step of removing the update for those devices.

Those in possession of the smaller iPad Pro device will now only see version 9.3.1 as the most recent version.

iOS 9.3.2
arrived as a minor release which squatted bugs and enabled users to enable Night Shift and Low Power Mode simultaneously.

This isn’t the first time Apple has been forced to remove an iOS 9 update from availability.

In late March, Apple pulled the iOS 9.3 update following a bug that prevented older device owners from authenticating their phones and tablets.
