Youtuber MegaLag took advantage of the powerful location network of AirTags smart tags to make a small experiment, recorded in two videos on its channel.
The content creator sent three units of the tracking item to peculiar places: North Korea, SpaceX headquarters, to be received by Elon Musk, and the main campus of SpaceX. Apple, the company that manufactures and sells the devices. One of the goals, in addition to evaluating the accuracy of the location, was to know where each item would go.
North Korea’s AirTag was the one with the least chance of success, which in fact happened: without entering the destination country, the product ended up in South Korea and there lost ways of tracking, as local laws prevent the use of the “Find My” network. SpaceX headquarters kept its unit for two and a half weeks, but it was later sent to a recycling center in California.
Finally, the model of Apple spent six weeks stranded in Cupertino, Silicon Valley. Soon after, AirTag returned to MegaLag’s home, entitled to a letter from one of the company’s CEO assistants, Tim Cook.
“Dear Jonathan, thank you for sharing with us about your project with AirTags from Apple. We were delighted to hear about creative uses of AirTags and how they can improve consumers’ lives. As you can imagine, Mr Cook receives hundreds of letters every month from customers like you. Unfortunately, it can’t respond to every request, but we hope you’ll continue to enjoy AirTags as they return from this unique journey around the world,” says the note.
