Apple's just-released iOS 9.3.2 update for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch are causing headaches for some users. iPad Pro users are reporting bricked devices, while others claim Bluetooth issues, shorter battery life and random crashes.
Apple will hold its annual WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) from June 13 to June 17 and will give the world its first look at all the new features in iOS 10, watchOS 3, tvOS 10 and Mac OS X 10.12.
The next major release of Apple's desktop operating system will reportedly drop "OS X" from its name and take a similar naming convention to the company's other operating systems; iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch), tvOS (Apple TV) and watchOS (Apple Watch).
Recently-leaked images of Mac OS X 10.12/macOS 10 appear to confirm that Apple will continue its trend of bringing features from iOS to its Mac desktop OS. One of those new tricks will be that Siri will finally make her way to Apple's Mac computers.
As for iOS 10, Apple has managed to keep a tight lid on its new features, and the company just released what is possibly one of the last iOS 9 updates in the form of iOS 9.3.2. New reports claim the software is wreaking havoc on many of the devices running the new OS.
MacRumors is reporting that Apple's latest flagship iPad, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is among the devices facing the most serious issues. Members of the site's forums are claiming that the iOS 9.3.2 update is causing freezing, crashing and random reboot cycles.
"I have started getting random reboots. Today for the first time my 9.7-inch iPad Pro froze on the Apple screen during reboot. It seems to happen most when switching between Mail and Safari. I had to hold the on/off button to get it unstuck," wrote one member.
Meanwhile, other users have reported that iOS 9.3.2 have bricked their devices: "Mine is bricked. Says it needs to be plugged into iTunes, won't restore or update, just a big loop. Fantastic. :/"
If you're experiencing any of these issues or other bugs, Apple is likely already planning to push out an update to squash these and other bugs that went unnoticed before the company released iOS 9.3.2.
Apple has acknowledged the issues and released a statement to iMore's Rene Ritchie, which he shared on Twitter: "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."
Meanwhile, a visit to Apple's support site is filled with users reporting multiple issues since updating to iOS 9.3.2. An iPhone 5s owner has reported that the update wiped out all of the album art in his music collection.
Other users who have installed iOS 9.3.2 are experiencing issues with Bluetooth, including choppy audio through Bluetooth headphones, while another user is reporting the update broke his Hyundai hands-free Bluetooth connection.
There are also reports of music no longer syncing with iTunes since the update, and others claim it has resulted in decreased battery life.
While Apple hasn't publicly said it's working on an iOS update to address all these issues, you can rest assured it is coming very soon.
