A two years old Chinese boy locked his mother’s iPhone for almost 47 years. The minor was playing with the iPhone and repeatedly entered the wrong password, Chinese media.
Lu, the mother of the boy returned home and found that her iPhone has been locked for 25 million minutes after entering the wrong passcode repeatedly when the phone requested the passcode be entered.
The phone got disabled for a certain time period, each time the boy entered the wrong password, according to the report by South China Morning Post citing Kankanews.com, a news website.
An official representative at an Apple store in Shanghai told Mrs. Lu that either wait for the years and enter the correct password to unlock the phone or wipe the contents of the iPhone clean and then reinstall all files again.
“In this scenario, the only way out (without waiting 47 years) is to do a factory reset and erase all the data from the iPhone,” the technician at Apple store, Wei Chunlong said.
“We already witnessed a number of cases, in which the phones have been locked for over 80 years by the same method,” Chunlong added.
