#TechTalk: How A 3-Year-Old Locked An iPad For 50 Years


Quick!

What's your password?!?!?

It's ok if you don't remember immediately. You are not alone.

(Honestly, I don't even remember all of my passwords all of the time.)

Unfortunately, we all know what happens when you punch the wrong password into your device more than 5 times.

You disable it.

But, what happens when you disable it for 50 years?

Yep. It really happened.

You read that right.

This man's 3-year-old disabled the family iPad for 25,536,442 minutes, which translates to about 50 years.

So, what do you do if this happens to you?

According to USA Today, the only real option is to wait those 50 years or restore the device by putting it into Device Firmware Update mode.

Hopefully you backed up all your data, because if not, well, it's gone now.

Sorry.
