Apple devices have a security system that will lock you out from your gadgets temporarily if you enter your passcode wrong. If you repeat on entering the wrong passcode, the locking time-out becomes longer.
We’ve come across a similar but a weird case recently, Evan Osnos got his iPad locked for 47 years (25,536,442 Minutes). Yes, you heard it quite right. I know you guys are thinking if Apple’s going mad or what? But that’s how their security algorithm works.
According to Osnos Twitter, he let his 3 years old son play with his iPad, but he never knew what was coming his way. He actually got himself locked out of his iPad for 47 years approximately.
Uh, this looks fake but, alas, it’s our iPad today after 3-year-old tried (repeatedly) to unlock. Ideas? pic.twitter.com/5i7ZBxx9rW
