YouTuber MegaLag has attempted a bold experiment and has sent three AirTags to as many different places. Specifically, the Bluetooth trackers were sent to Tim Cook, Elon Musk and North Korea.
MegaLag described in a series of videos what happened to the trackers during each trip.
The AirTags were all shipped from Frankfurt, Germany, and through the Dov’è application he was able to monitor in real time where the packages were, both in the DHL plants and in the airports before departure.
L’AirTag sent to Apple Park to Tim Cook was located in Nevada, United States. MegaLag, intrigued, turned to Flight Radar for some clarification and discovered that the flight carrying his package flew over Nevada. Probably, therefore, the tracker connected to some iPhone on the plane to send the position to Where is.
Once he arrived at Apple Park, he stayed there for six weeks only to be sent back to Germany. Upon his return, he was accompanied by a letter printed on paper and signed by one of Tim Cook’s assistants. In the letter, the name of the employee of the CEO states that the company is “happy to learn about the creative uses of AirTags“.
The AirTag sent to Elon Musk it remained at SpaceX headquarters for two and a half weeks, only to be taken over in a recycling center before “dying” in Cestaic, California.
The one addressed to North Korea it was never delivered and the YouTuber in the video explains that it is still in transit. The AirTag shipped to South Korea never appeared on Where’s because the Where’s network is not available in the country due to local regulations.
