Want to brick an iPhone? Set the date to January 1, 1970
Did you know that the iPhone has a specific time and date and then offers you the official death certificate from Apple, you can experience it yourself and I would advise not to experience, I am a victim of this experience. Two days ago, I changed the date of the phone iPhone 6+ to January 1, 1970, and then restart and here the result appeared only a death certificate iPhone, Device stuck in Apple logo this certificate is shown when connected to iTunes , even after update to latest versions of Apple Also after the process of restoration of the system.
The date bug affects iPhones, iPads and iPod touches with 64-bit processors running iOS 8 or iOS 9, including the iPhone 5S or newer, the iPad Air, iPad mini 2 or the 2015 sixth generation iPod touch or newer.
Methods of fixing dead iPhone ( 1 January 1970 )
- All you have to do is loosen the battery from the iPhone and leave it aside for a minute, watch video
And there is another way to fix that problem by leave the phone until it is empty of charging ( you have to wait days or months 🙂
Jailbroken iPhone users can protect themselves by using several tweaks that prevent the date being set to 1970.
