Now, here a question in our mind that can women use her iPhone? Apple official said she has two options first is she has to wait for 47 years, and other is she has to reinstall all files and use iPhone as a new one. This is very clear that nobody will wait for 47 years to use the phone.

Apple should not advise resetting the device. There are many some private information and some useful information. The user doesn't want to delete information they saved on phones. Apple should have some way to recover the password in these types of cases. There is a system on all iOS devices, if you attempt six wrong passwords, then it will disable your phone, and after ten incorrect attempts of a password, it will give you an option to reset your iOS device.
