Today’s iOS 9.3.2 update is said to be bricking some 9.7-inch iPad Pro devices. A number of users report issues with their device after installing the update over-the-air. The affected devices are displaying an “Error 56” message instructing them to plug the device into iTunes.

While not all owners of 9.7-inch iPad Pro models have reported the issue, MacRumors reports a number of users on their forums and on social networks are reporting the problem.
Users who have attempted to restore via iTunes report it doesn’t fix the issue. From MacRumors user NewtypeCJ:
Mine is bricked. Says it needs to be plugged into iTunes, won’t restore or update, just a big loop. Fantastic. :/
Apple’s error code support document, says error 56 is a hardware issue, and recommends installing the latest version of iTunes, checking for issues with third-party security software, and attempting to restore the device twice. If you still see the error, it is recommended that you contact Apple Support.
We’ll keep you posted on this, and let you know right here if we hear of a reliable fix, or an update from Apple.
