"Try again in 25,536,442 minutes".

Apple wrote: 'Locking yourself out of your iOS device and retrying with the wrong password too many times leads to permanent removal of data from the device. On Apple devices, if you enter the wrong password, then the time to retry unlocking it goes up by every wrong attempt.

Osnos sought help from the geniuses on Twitter by sharing a post with a photograph of the disabled iPad.

People offered hundreds of suggestions.

The only logical, and helpful solution to the epic lockdown was - "Just connect it to the computer you originally synced it to iTunes on, let it sync and it'll be fine".

"Put it in a bag of rice". "Twitter has been a force for good on this one; we've received tons of serious advice", he says.

Another user suggested Onos to "reboot" his 3-year-old. That equals out to be about 48 years. Because you know folks on social media are known for their patience.

According to the iPhone-maker's guidelines, users experiencing the problem are advised to restore and update their settings through iTunes.

"We're still locked out", Osnos was quoted as saying by the New York Daily News.

CNN reached out to Osnos for comment and is waiting to hear back.

In an update, Osnos said he managed to get his iPad into its Device Firmware Update mode and is in the process of restoration.

Thanks to his kid, Evan Osnos can't use his iPad until 2067.
