Toddler locks mother's iPhone for 47 years

Chinese toddler 'disables iPhone for 47 years'

That latter scenario happened to a Chinese mother, whose two-year-old son entered an incorrect passcode into an iPhone so many times that it was disabled for 47.5 years.

The mother, identified only by her surname, Lu, said she took her eye off her son for long enough for him to lock the phone for nearly five decades.

The mother returned home one day and when she checked the phone found it had been disabled for 25 million minutes by pressing keys repeatedly when the handset requested the passcode be inputted, according to the article.

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. She told Kanka News that she can't really wait for 47 years and tell her grandchild that it was his father's mistake. The child proceeded to enter the wrong passcode over and over again, forcing the iPhone to increase the amount of time which had to pass before it could unfreeze.

Le Drian should avoid adopting any negative position against Iran if Paris seeks to bolster relations with Tehran, said Velayati. Zarif countered that Europe needed to "play a more constructive role to preserve" the nuclear deal, France24 TV Network said.

Lu has waited for two months, hoping that the problem would rectify itself.

She said she took her eye off her phone and her son long enough for the toddler to keep putting in the wrong passcode, but did not say how long the child had been left unattended.

The Apple Store in Shanghai recommended the mother to either wait out the 47 years, or wipe the phone clean and start from scratch.

"There is no way to solve it unless she resets the system", he said.

The Tame Apple Press said that locking your phone like this isn't a total nightmare, because all you need to do is erase your phone data and do a factory reset.

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. However, despite their expertise in handling gadgets, kids do end up doing unusual things to your phones, like change your ringtone, delete your pictures or even basic apps from the phone.

If you've kept a backup, the phone will be restored as it was before the locking incident.
