A YouTuber Sends AirTags to North Korea to Test DHL's Shipping Claims of a Lost Package
Jonathan from the YouTube channel Megalag first decided to send his AirTags to various parts of the world. From Tim Cook to Elon Musk as well as North Korea, the YouTuber used DHL for package delivery. The AirTags did a pretty good job in tracking the location of the package, even in a cargo plane. While Apple sent the AirTag back with a letter, the package intended for North Korea got stuck at an AirPort in Germany, South Korea, and Beijing.
In a new video, Jonathan received one of his initial packages sent to North Korea along with sending another AirTag via DHL. He received an identical letter about his package being lost which was later found even after investigation. He speculates that DHL might find it more cost-effective to reimburse customers rather than finding the lost package. You can check out the video embedded below for more details.
It makes sense to return $29 but putting an AirTag alongside expensive packages could prove to be quite useful. We will share more stories related to people experimenting with their AirTags in the future, so be sure to stick around for more details.
