The story of how I lost my wallet on the subway at 5am and got it back the next day with Airtags


I’m generally prone to losing things, but I actually hadn’t lost my wallet in a couple of years. I was overdue. I was on my way back from my first concert since the pandemic started, it ended in Bushwick around 4am and then I had to walk 30 minutes to the Metropolitan G (there weren’t any Ubers out at that time). By then, I was barely alive, and my wallet must have slipped out of my pocket into the train sometime between 4:30-5:30am. Most of the time if you lose your wallet on the subway, your chances of getting it back are so slim you don’t even try, but I had luck, a kind stranger, and airtags on my side.

Good story, and a real-world use case showing AirTags living up to their potential.
