Kid Accidentally Locks Dad's iPad Until 2067

 

Oh the joys of parenting ... may be I need to rethink this whole baby thing ;) - Brooke

It may not be in your best interest to leave your electronic devices in the hands of toddlers. That's what one dad recently did with his iPad and now regrets it.

Evan Osnos has taken to Twitter in a desperate plea for help after his son repeatedly entered the wrong password into the iPad thus causing it to lock up. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem...except for the fact that the boy did it so many times the screen on the iPad said that heshould try back again in the year 2067

The iPad lockout is a security feature of Apple devices that kicks in whenever someone repeatedly types the wrong password. The more times an incorrect password is entered, the longer the lock-out time grows. 

So what does Apple suggest? They say he would need to perform a system restore to use the device again (but you would lose the data on the device if you've never backed it up) or he can simply wait til 2067 to try again.
