iOS 9.3.2 is the latest version of Apple’s mobile OS to be released for its compatible devices. And according to some unlucky owners of the iPad Pro 9.7-inch they have been experiencing serious issues due to an error 56 message. Which is forcing them to plug the device into iTunes and experience a frustrating boot loop.
iOS 9.3.2 Error 56 Message
User have taken to the likes of Facebook and Twitter to voice their anger, with many suggesting that this latest iOS 9.3.2 update is effectively bricking their iPad’s (9.7-inch iPad Pro).
Before I tell you any more, it’s worth me telling you that not all 9.7-inch iPad pro devices have been affected by this problem. It looks as though the majority have been able to download the over-the-air-update and upgrade to iOS 9.3.2 without any problems occurring. However, I’ve seen enough people complaining on Twitter to suggest that those who are affected with this error 56 and boot loop issue number in the many thousands.
Will Apple Help?
Assuming that Apple is aware of this error 56 issue with iOS 9.3.2 it should address the problem sooner rather than later. However, with no word as to whether a fix is on the way from them is leaving owners of affected devices are understandably frustrated.
The official Apple stance on the problem so far has been for owners of the affected iPad Pro 9.7-inch models to run through a few steps. And then if those steps don’t work, contact Apple support for further assistance.
What Steps Does Apple Suggest?
Apple suggests that you first make sure that you have the most up-to-date version of iTunes installed on the iPad. At the time of publication, the latest version was 12.4, you are then required to check to see if any third-party security software is installed. As this could be causing the error 56 and boot loop issue with iOS 9.3.2.
Next, you should make sure there are no problems with any connected cables, and then if all the previous have been ruled out attempt two more restore attempts. Only after all of the above, does it recommend you contact them directly for help! However, if your iPad is already bricked, then I doubt any help they give you could be good enough!
What Apple should do / what iPad owners with the iOS 9.3.2 error 52 issue want Apple to do, is to come out with some kind of official statement. An acknowledgement that they are aware of the problem and are going to take action.
