So, there is a rumor/'prank' going aroundthat if you change the date on your iPhone 6, or 6s to January 1st 1970.

It will brickyour phone.

Turns out this rumor is true.

I have an iPhone6 that I tried it on.

After scrolling all the way back to January 1st 1970, I turnedoff the phone.

and all it would do is power cycle when I turned it back on.

It would stay on the apple logo for a fewminutes, then turn off, turn back on.

and stay stuck in the fruit loop forever.


you'd have to be pretty silly to intentionallycause damage to an expensive cell phone.

BUT if you or someone else you know has accidentallyfallen for this prank, there is a way to fix it.

One way is to take it to the Apple storeand have them do their thing.

If that is not an option, a simple unplugging of the batterywill correct the software issue.

Once the battery has been unplugged from the frozendevice, the date and time will automatically reset, giving you full access to your phoneagain.

To remove the battery, there are 2 small pentalobe screws at the bottom.

Thenyou need to GENTLY lift the screen away from the device.

It helps if you have a littlesuction cup to help lift up.

Then there are 2 more screws holding down the battery connection.

Pop that off with a plastic pry tool.

Wait about 30 seconds before plugging it back inagain.

Once that is finished, put everything backwhere it belongs, and your phone is as good as new.

The next time you need to time travel.

Betterget an android.
