Shortly after Apple set one 1970-related iPhone glitch, another one seems to be at work. Numerous iPhone and iPad homeowners are tweeting screengrabs of cat emails coming from 1st Jan 1970. The e-mails don’t have any sender, topic or information, and CAn’t be erased, reviews the Telegraph.

What’s promising is the fact that this glitch doesn’t do any harm. The day is merely the Unix equivalent of zero, therefore the iOS Email app might standard for this if for whatever reason the right day and period were absent, as you Reddit person described …

The way in which it operates is the fact that the day is saved like a constantly growing assortment of over a million moments (ignores timezone conversions, simple for computers to deal with in binary). This really is usually named time or time. For instance, the present period at this time (within this structure) is approximately 1.45 million. Like I stated, rsquo & it;s simple for a PC to deal with this quantity to store the day on the 64bit device, particularly in binary. Well, if it s 1.45 million at this time, rsquo & what;s 0? The clear answer is January 1st, 1970, at night.

Most (although not all) of these influenced appear to go through the problem when changing timezone.

Stopping the e-mail app and then resetting the device (keeping down the ability and House switches before Apple logo looks) looks to get rid of the cat emails and end them recurring.
