Apple's AirTag Saved My Bike (Real Theft)

A thief stole my bike! After attempting to have my Bike, Keys and Wallet stolen a month ago, I decided I would continue my efforts to better understand how well Apple's AirTag works. This is the follow up video from that initial experiment. Enjoy!

    Quick question bro, even though you’re in Germany, are you originally from New Zealand? You seem to have a bit of a Kiwi accent.

    *Sheesh 11 days of leaving the bike out unlocked?* Not only that but it seems like the person who stole it didn't even seem to steal it for money or anything, which is quite shocking. I lost my bike on the first ride ever, within an hour of leaving it _LOCKED._ And it was a USED bike that cost only 150$ _NEW._

    I would like to see some AirTag project where you hand one to a random tourist leaving from the nearest airport, and telling them to give them to another tourist at their destination (and that they should do the same). It could go on quite an interesting journey...

    I'd guess the cars keys were in a car and maybe the movement was them dropping some one off at the train station? Could be that he found them left them in the glove compartment and just forgot. Still sounds like great tech I'm really thinking of getting one to hide in my car maybe in the roof liner or behind a humper

    For anyone wanting to travel Germany without going bankrupt: For long distances avoid 'Deutsche Bahn' & try to travel with bus companies like 'Flixbus' if possible. You can get a one way ticket from Düsseldorf to Karlsruhe for less than 20€. It might take longer, but if you're on a budget you may prefer taking the bus. If you prefer to take the train & you are going to travel within one Bundesland, like Lower Saxony for example, you can purchase the 'Niedersachsen-Ticket', which is very affordable and allows you to travel within Lower Saxony for one entire day (only local trains though- no IC or ICE) It's only 23€ for one person & 5€ for an additional person. So 2 people would pay 28€.. so 14€ each. You can find similar deals for other parts of Germany as well.

    The keys were in a car beside you on the side walk. That explains why they went to the station and back. Person was probably picking someone up from there. Try a test where the tag is in a car from a meter and see if it connects.

    I once ... just once - lost my iPhone. I'm always really carefull and at this time I noticed it late in the evening (not that much of a constant user). Well .. I lost my shit after I looked for the tracking information and seeing it in the neighbour city I was that day. To be honest: I panicked. My brother went with me, we searched the street then my Brother calmed and asked where I have been this day. It kicked in very soon, that I was close to the doctors office I went to that day. The next morning we called them and - sure enough - they had my phone. Another patiend found it on the stairs outside and brought it in. I was never so relieved in my life! And jeah ... got it back :D

    6:05 either they were trolling, or they came to the station to pick someone up and forgot that they had the stolen keys in a bag or something with them so you could see them go to the station, wait a couple minutes for the person they were waiting for, and then you could see the thief and whoever theyre picking up head back to the house

    The person who stole your keys realised they had an airtag when you put up your signs and inquired around. They walked around to either, try to draw you out or were morally debating whether they should turn it in. Since you didn't follow up, they're probably going to try to see if they can reappropriate it for themselves, or sell it online.

    The only problem with using airtags in this way is that if the person who stole your bike is within close proximity of the airtag for 4 hours AND they too have an iPhone, they will get an alert advising them that they are being followed by an Apple Airtag. Thus letting them know there is a tracking device on the bike.

    I have a couple theories on the keys that got taken to the station. One is that they were asking around to see if anyone knew anything, that's why they were pacing up and down the platform. The second is that someone grabbed the wrong keys, realized their mistake, then ran back to the apartment to get the right ones.
