Apple iOS 9.3.2 Update Reportedly Bricking 9.7-inch iPad Pro Tablets With Error 56 Message
Apple's incremental update to iOS went out on Monday and was supposed to squash a handful of bugs, not introduce a show stopping one. Sometimes these things happen, but it looks particularly bad for Apple, which has been pitching its iPad Pro as an "uncompromising vision of personal computing for the modern world." Tim Cook took it a step further when the larger size iPad Pro first came out by questioning why anyone would buy a PC these days.
"I think if you're looking at a PC, why would you a PC anymore? No really, why would you buy one?," Cook said.
Easy answer—they're less prone to bricking, to name one of several advantages. And make no mistake, this isn't the first major annoyance to hit iPad Pro owners in the product family's relatively short existence. Back in November of last year, users complained of iPad Pro tablets freezing after extended charging sessions.
We're not trying to bash the iPad Pro. The point here is that Apple needs to do better if it wants customers to take its tablet seriously as a professional tool. Incidents like these are more than just an annoyance on the professional side, they're unacceptable.

Waiting impatiently for Apple to releases a fix. Big day for @AppleSupport
If none of those work, you can try contacting Apple Support for more suggestions.
