3-year-old boy locks dad out of iPad until 2067

Toddler locks his dad out of iPad for 48 years

Here's what was showed on Evan's iPad screen. "Ideas?" Osnos tweeted last week.

If you connect your iPad to a PC and run iTunes, you can force-restart the device, and restore it from a backup. It also had this mind-blowing message: "Try again in 25,536,442 minutes".

For anyone counting at home, that's 48-and-a-half years.

CNN reports that the iPad lockout is a security feature of Apple devices that kicks in whenever someone repeatedly types the wrong password.

While multiple Twitter users offered sympathy and advice in resolving the issue, some users saw this as an opportunity for some light-hearted trolling with one user asking Evan to put his tablet in rice and another proposing time travel as the only possible solution. In Evan's case, it meant not having to wait five decades to unlock his iPad.

Another user suggested Onos to "reboot" his 3-year-old. It's not clear if the trick worked, but those who are experiencing similar problems can try out these steps instead of being subjected to smugly responses from the free netizens of the world.

"We're still locked out", Osnos was quoted as saying by the New York Daily News.

"It's down a few hundred minutes from yesterday, but it looks like we've still got 25 million minutes to go", he said.

By the time he gets to use his iPad again, his three-year-old will have already celebrated his 50th birthday!

Thankfully, Osnos later tweeted that he was able to restore the device.
