Date bug may avoid 64-bit iOS from starting up, making them inoperable even through fail safe recover methods using iTunes.
The bug within Apple’s period of configurations (date and time settings) within iOS causes this kind of issue that customers are confirming the fail safe recover methods using iTunes are unable to correct the issue.
The date bug greatly affects all Apple products (except for watch and Mac with 64 bit processors operating iOS 8 or 9, such as the iPone 6s, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 or the 2015 sixth generation iPod touch
The particular reason for the problem hasn’t been established yet, though speculation factors towards the method iOS stores date and time formats that 1 Jan 1970 is saved like a value of zero or significantly less than zero, creating every other procedure that needs the full time stamp to crash.
To really set the date back that far, manually, is very laborious, needing plenty of scrolling, preserving the full time then re-entering the time and date settings to even browse some more, don’t you think?
However, there is a possibility that a mischievous assailant might trick an iOS to a system set to automatically changing its date and time configurations into establishing the day to 1 January 1970 merely by pretending to be a time server. A hacker might packet every 64 bit iPhone connected to a public Wi-Fi’s, as an example.
Apple users that are fond of jailbreaking their iPhones may protect their iPhones by utilizing many adjustments that avoid the date being set to 1970. Other users may protect themselves by not switching off their iPhones, by setting their iPhone’s date and time – manually and by shutting off automatic time changes.
So there you have it, never ever set your iPhone’s date back to 1970.
