On Monday evening Apple released updates for its computers, for its iDevices, and for its watches and TV STBs, ahead of the WWDC (running from 13-17th June). The updates across the platforms brought a variety of fixes and patches for vulnerabilities, as per usual. However, there are numerous Twitterings from people who have 'bricked' their expensive new iPad Pro tablets during this update.
In particular it seems to be that the iPad Pro 9.7-inch model is often affected adversely by the iOS 9.3.2 update. If any HEXUS readers invested in one of these recently released tablets I would advise them to sit back and wait and not accept the current 91MB iOS OTA update they might be prompted to install by the iOS system.
Using an iPad Pro 9.7-inch version? Then it might be best to wait for a newer update version.
As with any OS updates, on any system, its often best policy to wait at least a day or two for any nasty bugs that have slipped past QC to be spotted by the community. One of the most important fixes present in Apple iOS 9.3.2 addresses vulnerabilities in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices, so iPad Pro users perhaps shouldn't be so eager to update anyway.
So what happens if you update your iPad Pro 9.7-inch with iOS 9.3.2? We aren't sure that this affects all such users, or anything of that scale, but the reports and Tweets say that affected iPad Pro devices will get an 'Error 56' message shortly after accepting, downloading and installing the latest OTA update.

In the wake of the error message users will be asked by an on screen prompt to plug in and connect to iTunes. Unfortunately the suggested solution doesn't appear to work for anyone of those affected, whose devices are thus effectively 'bricked'.
