Published in Weird News

(UPI) A woman in China's iPhone will be locked for 47 years after her two-year-old repeatedly entered the wrong passcode to unlock the device.

The woman, identified by her family name Lu, explained to Chinese media that she left the iPhone with her son so that he could watch educational videos.

The son then accidentally activated the iPhone's security system which extends the amount of time the device is locked every time a wrong passcode is entered. Lu came home to discover that her phone was disabled and unusable for over 25 million minutes, or a total of 47 years.

Lu then brought the phone to an Apple store in Shanghai where a technician explained that she could either wait to unlock her phone or reboot the iPhone which would erase all of the phone's data.

"I couldn't really wait for 47 years and tell my grandchild it was your father's mistake," the mother said.
