Apple is bricking iPads with its latest update

Not all of Apple's updates go smoothly, especially with iOS 9.3. With the 9.3 update, users expressed frustration with the much-hyped Night Shift. Then with 9.3.1, some said that visiting links in Chrome, Mail, Messages, Safari and some other third-party apps, caused nasty freezes and crashes.

Why would the iOS 9.3.2 update be any different? The latest update may "brick" your iPad Air or iPad Pro, leaving it unusable and useless. It'll be a brick.

Apple's Support page was flooded with complaints as are social media sites too. Some iPad users had to wait 15 to 30 minutes for the update to complete, some had to restart their iPads, while others endured the Error 56 message.

You don't want to get Error 56. It means a system restore failed after a reboot, turning their fancy and expensive iPads into fancy and expensive paperweights.

If you've run into similar problems when updating to iOS 9.3.2, or if you unfortunately receive Error 56, click here for specific instructions from Apple Support.

Apple is normally pretty responsive to issues such as the ones outlined above. When they release a fix, we'll be sure to alert you at Komando.com. In the meantime, if you can delay installing the update, it may save you a major headache.
