The latest iOS 9.3.2 update that was aimed at addressing a bunch of bug issues seems to be causing problems for owners of the 9.7in iPad Pro who noticed the issue soon after installing the over-the-air update. According to users, they are greeted with an error message, error 56, asking them to plug their iPad to iTunes.

According to the Apple support site, error 56 could be due to a hardware issue, for which users are advised to ensure their iOS device is running on the latest version of iTunes; check for issues with third-party security software; make sure the USB cable, computer and network are reliable. Even after doing all these, if you still see the error, you must contact Apple support.

While there is no word on how many users are affected with the issue, users on MacRumor forum reported the issue is widespread. Restoring through iTunes has not helped users resolve the problem.

iMore reached out to Apple to know more the error 56 that has affected a "small number" of iPad owners. Apple in a statement noted: "We're looking into a small number of reports that some iPad units are receiving an error when updating the software. Those unable to restore their device through iTunes should contact Apple support."

Apple rolled out the iOS 9.3.2 for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners recently to fix bugs and improve the security of the iOS devices.

A few of the notable fixes are for issues such as Bluetooth accessories experiencing audio quality issues when paired to iPhone SE, dictionary definition failing, typing email addresses when using the Japanese Kana keyboard in Mail and Messages and issue with VoiceOver using the Alexa voice and MDM servers from installing custom B2B apps.
