Child Locks Iphone for 47 years. Baby In China Locks iPhone For 47 Years After Pressing Wrong Passcode Repeatedly.
A two-year-old in China locked an iPhone for the equivalent of 47 years after entering the wrong passcode repeatedly. To be able to use the iPhone again, the mother would either have to wait the long amount of time or just wipe the phone.
This incident happened back in January.
A two-year-old boy in Shanghai was responsible for locking his mother's iPhone for 47 years. Just pressing the screen caused the passcode screen to appear and he entered it wrong for a while.
His mother, called Lu in the story, says that when she returned to their home, the phone displayed the message saying that it was disabled for 25 million minutes. This could only be possible by repeatedly entering the wrong passcode.
She was told at an Apple store that she could either wait it out for the number of years it says on the phone or just factory reset the phone to be able to use it again. A technician for the Apple store told the South China Morning Post that this isn't the first time that he has seen this, a previous case he worked on had the iPhone locked for over 80 years.
"I couldn't really wait for 47 years and tell my grandchild it was your father's mistake," said Lu about the iPhone.
