Chinese toddler locks mum's iPhone for 47 years

Toddler hacks mum's iPhone and locks her out for 48 years

Apple devices lock the phone for increasing increments of time every time the incorrect password is entered.

A cautionary tale for all parents with toddlers: Do not let your child play with your phone, or you might not be able to unlock it for years.

The incident apparently occurred back in January 2018 when the mother gave her kid the iPhone to watch educational videos on.

Hospital visits for opioid overdoses rose 30 percent nationwide — CDC report
Mary's in both Madison and Sun Prairie started a program where people who overdose are encouraged to seek drug treatment. And common painkillers don't have side effects, such as leading people into opioid addiction, the study concluded.

The mother, identified by her family name as Lu, returned home and found that the phone had been disabled for 25 million minutes by pressing keys repeatedly when the handset requested the passcode be inputted.

While the report doesn't specify which iPhone was being used, it appears to be an iPhone 5; a handset that launched before the arrival of Apple's Touch ID and Face ID biometric security.

This rises to five minutes for six fails, 15 minutes for seven and eight fails, and then an hour for nine fails. It can happen on any iOS-based device as they are created to lock down for some time when someone enters an incorrect passcode multiple times. Now, it is not clear how many times the two-year-old typed the wrong one, to bring it to 25 million minutes.

Fiji lose to US in Vegas 7s
Fiji scored four tries with captain Jerry Tuwai dotting down twice while Alasio Naduva and Paula Dranisinukula scoring a try each. The tournament saw many interesting results, with the US becoming the fifth team to win a tournament in the 2017/18 World Series.

Lu said she has waited for two months but has seen no sign of the problem rectifying itself. When the woman took the phone to fix shop, the technician over there told her that he once had seen an iPhone locked for 80 years.

Chunlong also said that there had been cases of phones getting locked for an equivalent of over 80 years by the same method. But it remained locked and would do so for decades.

She said she took her eye off her phone and her son long enough for the toddler to keep putting in the wrong passcode, but did not say how long the child had been left unattended.

Google has found a buyer for their restaurant discovery service Zagat
One possibility is integrating Zagat's content into other products and platforms. The Infatuation did not disclose the amount of the impending purchase.

'I couldn't really wait for 48 years and tell my grandchild it was your father's mistake, ' the woman said, according to the South China Morning Post.
