When Your iPhone Turns To iStone…

Would you like a truly retro iPhone design?

The safe answer is No, Thank you.

You may come across this advert, which looks like a hack suggested by Apple itself, telling you there’s an “easter egg” or hidden feature that allows you to “relive the magic” of the past by setting your phone back in time to January 1, 1970.

However, if you set that date on any iPhone that is a 5s and up, your phone will be “bricked,” or unable to be rebooted. Other iOS devices that are affected are iPad Air or above, iPad mini 2, and the sixth generation iPod touch.

Digital devices become locked and inaccessible for a range of reasons, sometimes due to glitches, but usually as an anti-theft measure. So long as you are the owner of the device, there are solutions to this problem. To correct most of these, you’ll need a skilled Advanced Computers technician to gently get inside these impenetrable devices and fully disconnect the battery to reset the time setting.
