More Apple fun: Infinite loop Ithingies

Borrow a soon to be ex friend's I thingie and set the date to Jan 1, 1970


Take a 64-bit iOS device—iPhone 5S or newer, iPad Air or newer, iPad Mini 2 or newer, sixth generation iPod touch or newer—laboriously set its date to January 1, 1970, and reboot. Congratulations: you now have a shiny piece of high-tech hardware that's stuck at the boot screen, showing nothing more than the Apple logo... forever.

But wait, there is a fix for this "feature"

Let the battery die, or remove and re-install, then all is well, ------maybe

Meh. Just hit it with a rock. Faster and far more annoying for your friend.
