IPhone disabled by Chinese toddler for next 47 years

IPhone disabled by Chinese toddler for next 47 years

The incident apparently occurred back in January 2018 when the mother gave her kid the iPhone to watch educational videos on.

According to the mother, who posted about her plight on an online forum, the toddler repeatedly attempted to unlock the phone, but with the wrong password.

A woman sets up her facial recognition as she looks at her Apple iPhone X at an Apple store in NY, on November 3, 2017.

When she returned, she found that the phone was disabled and locked for 47 years - or, to be exact, 25,113,676 minutes.

One of the security features of Apple iPhones is its passcode. For the seventh failed attempt, the phone will be locked in five minutes. It can happen on any iOS-based device as they are created to lock down for some time when someone enters an incorrect passcode multiple times. One was to wait for 25 million minutes AKA 47 years and the other was to erase her device by doing a complete reset. He could have typed random characters and entered multiple times, multiplying the locked time to the nth degree.

The bomb threat, written on masking tape and found in two boys' bathrooms at the school, was reported at 11:34 a.m. The student was suspended and removed from the school property Monday with the assistance of his parents.

Ms Lu has waited for two months but has seen no sign of the problem rectifying itself, reports suggest. In a case in China, a mother is furious after her toddler managed to lock her iPhone for 47 years.

The technician, named as Wei Chunlong, also told the website that there had been cases of phones locked for the equivalent of over 80 years by the same method. But it remained locked and would do so for decades.

A phone technician at an Apple store in Shanghai was quoted as saying that the woman could either wait years to try to input her passcode again or wipe the contents of the handset clean and then reinstall files.

The story sparked passionate debate over in China, with parents saying the iMum should not have given the phone to her child and let him play unsupervised.
