    Funny thing, you probably couldn’t actually. None of the current TLS certificates would be valid in a couple of years

        No. Many certificates are only valid for a couple months to years into the future. Many websites wont work if you set your system time to +5 years, because most certificates won’t be valid for that time.

      Yeah, but even without network time updates your device’s internal clock is probably accurate enough to be able to tell if 2 years have passed or not. If it has an error of ≥2 years per 2 years, you need a new clock.

        The premise was that the spouse set the phone clock into the future. That has nothing to do with how accurate the RTC is (usually <10s/day)
