Curious how this worked with airpods, as they need a BT connection to the phone to do anything with the internet.
Even if the thief paird them to their own phone, nothing I'm aware of would "call home" on them to show location.

Purse gets stolen because it was left in the car.

/Of course you should be able to just leave things in cars but unfortunately that's not reality, for the most part.

They were able to ping her airpods to a home near I-40 and San Pedro and gave police a description of the suspect and the vehicle she was in. Police confirmed the vehicle as stolen and arrested 45-year-old Rebecca Henderson.

The story is scant on details. For example, how many months the cops spent shrugging their shoulders even after someone told them exactly where a stolen car was parked.

I was thinking this as well.  I also think it has to do with Bill Gates trying out a new stalking mechanism

That's Albuquerque police for you. They don't move unless there's a homicide or a rich white lady that gets her airpods stolen.

From what I could glean online, an Airpod will emit a continuous bluetooth signal and if a nearby iPhone hears it, it will update an Apple-maintained database that records the phone's location using the phone's GPS data. There was a recent story of a Russian soldier looting a Ukrainian Airpod in the Kyiv region and the owner tracking it as it moved into Belarus and then back down into Eastern Ukraine.

As of iOS 15, this is a new capability for AirPods that is modeled on AirTags. All iPhones in the world become a giant detection mechanism that detect pings from lost Apple devices (unless you disable this on your phone). You can find it as long as it's near someone's iPhone.

Was the 5G-loaded vaccine not enough???

They're also super embarrassing. Everyone can see you wearing them.

When I see someone wearing them, my first thought is a huge load of jizz is hanging out of their ear.

Oh I'm well aware, but since he put 5G tracking chips in the covid vaccines why would he need to track people using airpods?
