Toddler disables dad’s iPad for nearly half century

Toddler locks his dad out of iPad for 48 years

A dad learned the hard way not to leave his iPad out with his toddler around.

Evan Osnos posted a photo on Twitter which shows that he is not locked out of his iPad for the next 25,536,442 minutes which is roughly 48 years, you can see his tweet below. In other words, the iPad can only be unlocked again sometime in 2067 and the toddler would have been 51 years old by then!

To put what happened into perspective, Osnos' son input the wrong passcode many times to get this penalty, and he'll be 50 years old once the iPad is ready to use.

Thankfully Osnos' Twitter followers gave all kinds of help in the comments, because there's nothing but good things in the comments, right?

The best suggestion, however, was time travel.

Nevertheless, the problem was eventually solved.

Apple's procedure calls for a total restore to be able to use the device again, but this means losing all the data if the device was never backed up in the first place.

On Monday, Osnos told the New York Daily News he was "still locked out".

The second method is to get your locked iPhone or iPad into Recovery Mode to try resetting the device.
