What happens if you input the wrong passcode into your iPad too many times? You get locked out for a period of time and you can then try and put the passcode in again once the lcok has expired.
Unfortunately one dad found out that his 3 year old managed to try and put the passcode in so many times that he cannot retry to enter it for the next 48 years.
Evan Osnos posted a photo on Twitter which shows that he is not locked out of his iPad for the next 25,536,442 minutes which is roughly 48 years, you can see his tweet below.
Uh, this looks fake but, alas, it’s our iPad today after 3-year-old tried (repeatedly) to unlock. Ideas? pic.twitter.com/5i7ZBxx9rW

Unfortunately there is no way to reset this timer and also no way to get into the iPad, there is nothing that Apple can do to reset the device.
