This is why you don’t let your kid play with your locked iPhone

You only have so many chances to enter the passcode into an iPhone before it decides you’re trying to break in. When that happens, you’re forced to wait a certain interval before you can try again.

If a child gets hold of your locked iPhone, things can get real weird real fast.

This email came in from Samantha. If my math is right, she’s locked out of her iPhone until sometime in 2053. Can anyone help?

I heard you talk about someone’s iPhone being locked for some crazy amount of time. My daughter locked mine!! If you know how they opened it please pass along your knowledge. I don’t use the phone so I’m not at a loss but I would like to open it. ?
