9.7-inch iPad Pro devices that were bricked by Apple’s initial release of iOS 9.3.2 are finally getting some relief today in the form of a new update that should set everything right.

Apple pulled iOS 9.3.2 availability from iPad Pros last month after it was discovered that a mysterious “Error 56” bug bricked some devices. The updated version of iOS 9.3.2 presumably fixes the issue, making it safe for iPad Pro users to finally update.

iOS 9.3.2 mostly focuses on bug fixes, however it does add the ability to use Night Shift and Low Power Mode at the same time. The update also brings out some improvements to Bluetooth accessories, the dictionary, custom B2B apps installed from MDM servers, and other small changes.

iPad Pro owners can download iOS 9.3.2 via an over-the-air update, or by plugging the device into iTunes. With the new version of iOS out, developers can also start installing the new iOS 9.3.2 beta that was released last week.
