3-year-old locks his dad's iPad for over 25 million minutes with wrong passwords

3-year-old locks his dad's iPad for over 25 million minutes with wrong passwords

In one of the weirdest and frankly, funniest stories so far in 2019, a 3-year-old toddler has locked up his dad's iPad and now the device is asking the older man to try reopening in over 48 years.

Evan Osnos, a staff writer at The New Yorker and a fellow at the Brookings Institution, has taken to Twitter to reveal that his 3-year-old boy locked up his iPad so that the device is now asking him to try again in 25,536,442 minutes.

25, 536,442 minutes translates into 48 and half years. That means even the 3-year-old boy could be looking at the latter part of his life by then.

Osnos put out a tweet letting the world know of his situation and asking for anyone who could help him.

"Uh, this looks fake but, alas, it's our iPad today after 3-year-old tried (repeatedly) to unlock. Ideas?" Osnos tweeted.

A photo of the iPad's screen noted the device was disabled. It also had this mind-blowing message: "Try again in 25,536,442 minutes".

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.

The responses to Osnos ranged from slightly helpful to vastly mocking.

There were memes in there among the responses too.

Luckily for Osnos, some people took him more seriously and suggested feasible solutions.
