Those loveable scamps at 4chan are at it again.
Anyone tempted by the allure of a sweet, sweet, retro Apple logo on their iPhone might have been tempted to change its date to 1/1/70.
That would have been bad but ars technica has the cure…
” The faulty date does get reset when the battery goes completely flat, however, so discharging the phone (or disconnecting the battery, if you’re brave) fixes it. “
Why? Well iOS runs on UNIX and 1/1/70 is the “0” date for the operating system. Basically it’s like the “Y2K bug” but something bad happens.
Prepare for the sequel in 2038…
