In the category ‘things your child should not mess around with’ we give you the semi-humorous story of a Chinese mother who now has to wait nearly half a century to use her phone. Apple’s technicians declared that there’s nothing to do in this case but wait or lose all data on the phone.
Chinese Mom Said She Left Her Child Unsupervised for a Couple of Seconds
The unlucky Chinese mom named Lou told a Shanghai news outlet that her 2-year-old son managed to lock her out of her iPhone for 47 years. As stunning it would might sound, this is quite a common thing among iPhone users who repeatedly enter the wrong PIN.
According to the Chinese mom, on that particular morning, she gave her 2-year-old son the phone in order to watch a couple of educative videos. She went to the kitchen and returned after a couple of seconds to check up on her son.
Upon returning, the woman had the shock of her life to discover that she was locked out of her phone and that the device kindly asked her to try again in 25,114, 984 minutes or roughly 47 years.
The Chinese mom jestingly told the reporter that she called the Apple customer service center because she wasn’t about to wait until her grandson is born to tell him or her about how his father managed to lock her out of her iPhone.
The Apple technician told the woman that she has two choices – either to a manual factory reset, which meant losing all data on her phone or wait until the device becomes unlocked.
The Chinese mom declared that she becomes weary of waiting, as it’s been two months since she last used her phone. An Apple technician declared that one user reported that he had to wait 80 years for his phone to get unlocked.
