Avoid Inputting this Date on your Apple Devices

Technology

A new bug is created to attack iPhone and iOS devices. The bug will make your gadget paralyzed permanently. But it will only appear if you input the date of January 1 1970. This is possible that the date was the first date in a Unix platform time which is the basis of iOS operating system. Setting the date will be the same with resetting the time of your device back to zero. The bad news is the bug will destroy your phone that it is not repairable even if you try to restore it from the iTunes. You can only fix your phone physically if you’re lucky, or you have to buy a new one.

At first the bug was spread from several sites that spread the rumor that you can get the colorful retro Apple logo if you input the date January 1, 1970 on the time setting. But the rumor also doesn’t make sense because the Apple Company was established in 1976. We need to take a note that the bug will only attack the iOS 64-bit devices, which are iPhone 5S, iPad Air, iPad Mini, and newer gadgets. Be careful!
