Apple releases iOS update to fix iPad-bricking bug


Presumably won't break your 9.7-inch iPad Pro this time

Apple has at last released an iOS update to fix a nasty bug that was transforming 9.7-inch iPad Pros into unusable slabs of glass. The update, version number 9.3.2, pledges to fix whatever software issue was bricking the tablets, and it can be downloaded over the air today. Apple originally pulled 9.3.2 last month when users started seeing "Error 56." That prompts you to plug the device into iTunes so it can be restored, which doesn't end up fixing whatever problem was rendering the iPad Pro useless.

If you've already successfully updated your iPad Pro to the latest version of iOS, you don't need to seek out this update. But if you've been holding off since hearing the news, you can now head over to the "General" section in Settings and try the download again. It will give an error on the first try, but tap it again and a new 9.3.2 will start downloading and then install.
