Following some user reports of "bricking" and an "Error 56" issue that made the device unable to be recovered, Apple has pulled the iOS 9.3.2 update for owners of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Currently, Apple is replacing unit that have been "bricked" by the update with new ones, collecting the unusable units to help it determine the cause of the problem. Thus far, the problem with the iOS 9.3.2 update only affects the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and not other models -- so the update will continue to be made available to iPhone and other iPad owners. Not all 9.7-inch iPad Pro owners have seen the issue, with some upgrading to iOS 9.3.2 successfully.
A photo of a new, upcoming MacBook Pro has been leaked online, a report claims. The model is described by Engadget as part of an upcoming refresh, and said to be based on a rumored "brick" manufacturing process, in which notebooks would be formed out of a single block of metal, using water and lasers to carve out details. This would potentially have a number of benefits for Apple, including greater durability and a reduced need for seams and screws.
