A two-year-old boy in Shanghai locked his mother’s iPhone for  47 years after playing with it and repeatedly entering the wrong passcode. The mother ,Lu  found that the phone had been disabled for 25 million minutes by pressing keys repeatedly when the handset requested the passcode. Each time the wrong keys were pressed, the phone was disabled for a period of time.

A technician at an Apple store in Shanghai told Lu to either wait for 47 years to try to put her passcode again or format the handset and re install files.

“In this woman’s case, the only way out is to erase all the phone data and do a factory reset,” technician said.

There had been cases of phones getting locked for an equivalent of over 80 years by the same method.

Lu  said that she has waited for two months but has seen no sign of the problem rectifying itself. “I couldn’t really wait for 47 years and tell my grandchild it was your father’s mistake,” Lu said.
