Uh, this looks fake but, alas, it's our iPad today after 3-year-old tried (repeatedly) to unlock.

Thankfully Osnos' Twitter followers gave all kinds of help in the comments, because there's nothing but good things in the comments, right?

Helpfully commenters offered suggestions such as, 'Time travel seems to be your best bet'.

If you connect your iPad to a PC and run iTunes, you can force-restart the device, and restore it from a backup.

Virginia won the final few seconds of four straight games
It's tempting to call Virginia a team of destiny, but that would undermine what the Cavaliers accomplished this season. Hunter quietly made his way through the tournament after leading the Cavaliers in scoring (15.6 points) in ACC play.

Others were nonsensical: "Put it in a bag of rice".

Apple says, 'If you backed up your device, you can restore your data and settings after restoring your device'. Parent Evan Osnos, a writer for the New Yorker, tweeted an image of his child's handiwork and the resulting message. Although the time had gone a few hundred minutes, "it looks like we've still got 25 million minutes to go". Osnos reached out to Twitter with his predicament, hoping someone would have a fix for him, but unfortunately, the only way to fix the problem is to do a full restore of the tablet.

"Update on toddler-iPad-lock-out: Got it into DFU mode (don't hold down the sleep/power button too long or you end up in recovery)".
