Apple’s pulled the newest iOS replace (9.three.2) for the 9.7-inch iPad Professional, following studies that this model of the software program was bricking some units. To make issues worse, the affected tablets cannot be restored by way of iTunes, although house owners are being prompted to attempt that pc-based mostly technique. It is unclear what brought about the difficulty, however Apple says it is already engaged on a repair.

A spokesperson for the corporate offered us the next assertion:

“We’re engaged on a repair for a problem impacting a small variety of iPad models which are receiving an error when making an attempt to replace the software program. We’ll challenge an replace as shortly as attainable.”

This is not the primary time Apple has had one thing like this occur. Again in March, it needed to launch an up to date construct of iOS 9.three, after an earlier model stored individuals with older iPhones and iPads from putting in the replace appropriately. Fortunately Apple sometimes solely takes a day or two to push out a repair, so we anticipate that to be the case right here as nicely. Nonetheless, as 9to5Mac factors out, it is unclear whether or not the subsequent replace will convey these bricked iPad Execs again to life. We’ll discover out quickly sufficient.
