Changing The Date To 1/1/1970 Will Brick Your iPhone, iPad Or iPod Touch

How does stuff like this get overlooked? The fact that a hacker could brick every 64-bit iDevice connected to a public wi-fi network makes this situation even worse.

The bug within Apple’s date and time settings within iOS causes such an issue that users are reporting that the fail-safe restore techniques using iTunes are not able to repair the problem. The date bug affects iPhones, iPads and iPod touches with 64-bit processors running iOS 8 or iOS 9, including the iPhone 5S or newer, the iPad Air, iPad mini 2 or the 2015 sixth generation iPod touch or newer.
