✔✔✔rating

Changing the date and time system in iOS ie, changing your iPhone's or any iOS device's date to January 1, 1970, will kill your iPhone forever.

Do Not Try This Trick with your iOS device really



This bug affects any iOS device that uses 64-bit A7, A8, A8X, A9 and A9X processors and runs iOS 8 or newer, including iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches. However, for those running on 32-bit iOS versions are not affected by this issue.This bug is related to UNIX timestamp epoch that causes the kernel to crash. The only way to get it back is to open the device's casing and physically disconnect the battery from the logic board. This could only be done with the help of Apple's Genius Bar.


This process will reset the iPhone's date and allow it to boot.While there isn't any other fix at the moment, Apple is expected to come up with a software update to fix and unbrick the affected iOS devices.
