Representative ImageThe exasperated woman took to Mumsnet to share her experience about her darling son who was allowed to use the phone to watch "educational videos". The two-year-old toddler in Shanghai ended up locking his mother's iPhone for almost half a century. By 25 million seconds, it does not mean the iPhone is locked for a few minutes or seconds, but the device is locked for 48 years.

But this little kid did something that will make you vow never to give your phone in another toddler's hands, ever again.

The woman reportedly waited two months in the hope that the issue would fix itself, before deciding to seek help. Unfortunately, she discovered later that he had entered the incorrect passcode so many times that her phone was locked down for 25 million minutes, or the equivalent of more than 47 years.

"I couldn't really wait for 47 years and tell my grandchild it was your father's mistake", she was quoted as saying.

He said she could then reinstall the files she had stored on her smartphone. The Apple Store technician says Lu's case is nothing; he's seen iPhones locked for over 80 years.

'In this woman's case, the only way out [without waiting] is to erase all the phone data and do a factory reset, ' Mr Chunlong said.

As a matter of fact, this unfortunate incident could happen to any Apple device. The lock time starts short, but gets longer with more failed attempts, eventually reaching lifetime proportions.

While we'd probably go a different route, the mum has chose to wait it out, and two months later is reportedly still locked in a battle of the wills with her locked phone.
