Apple has publicly acknowledged the existence of a bug that may brick the iPhone or any other iOS device when the date is set to January 1st, 1970. According to a dedicated Apple Support document released on February 15th, changing the date may prevent the device from booting on the next startup.
According to a number of reports from users from different countries, setting the date to January 1st, 1970 can permanently brick your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 9 or higher. The bug in the mobile operating system makes it possible to turn the device with Apple’s A7, A8, A8X, A9, and A9X processor into a completely useless thing.
Below you can take a look at the video showing the bug.
