Personally, I'm not sure why this should be an issue, unless you are going Back To The Future... maybe, I'm just thick? However, it has apparently affected more than just Marty McFly. :)

--------------------------------------

Manually setting the date of your iPhone or iPad to 1 January 1970 will cause it to get permanently stuck while trying to boot back up if it’s switched off.

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. The precise cause of the issue has not been confirmed .
