Apple's latest iOS update is causing serious problems for iPad Pro owners

LAST NIGHT, APPLE quietly released a small update to iOS. Version 9.3.2 fixed a few small issues including bluetooth accessories experiencing audio quality issues with the iPhone SE as well as a couple of security issues.

Shortly after it launched, it turned out that the new update would end up bricking iPad Pro devices. Those affected would be greeted with an error 56 message and instructed to plug their device into iTunes, but this doesn’t seem to be resolving the issue.

All other Apple devices including iPhones and other iPad devices don’t appear to be affected by the bug.

According to Apple’s error list, error 56 is said to be a hardware issue but it’s unclear what exactly is causing problems for iPad Pro owners.

Since it has been released in September, iOS 9 has suffered from some problems.

Earlier this year, Apple had to fix error 53, an issue which caused iPhones to be rendered useless if the home button was replaced by a third-party. iOS 9.2.1 was released in February as a way of restoring phones disabled by the error, which was down to Apple’s Touch ID system.

iOS 9.3 was the last major release before the new version is released in September. Apple will show off some of its new features at WWDC, its developer conference, next month.
