Lost (potentially stolen) Apple Pencil at airport
For those as trustworth/stupid as I am… make sure you take your Apple Pencil off the side of your iPad before leaving it where someone might have access or might move your device around.
I just went through airport security in Budapest, pulled my iPad out and put it on a tray with my bag and went through the scanner. On the other side of security my iPad had been placed in a separate tray to my bag and the pencil was missing. My gut is telling me the staff member who moved the iPad to a separate box stole it but, although it could have just come off when she was moving it. Either way… if you’re leaving your iPad unattended in public take the pencil with you, it’s far too easy for it to fall off or be removed.
As for the story… they searched for it but couldn’t find it, the lady who separated the device went on break 5 minutes after separating my bag and the manager refused to give me her name to provide to the airport complaints people (I’ve taken the managers name instead). As an afterthought I now realise I should have tried to connect to it via bluetooth but it’s too late now!
TLDR: Don’t leave your Apple Pencil on the side of the iPad when you’re out and about, it is too easy for it to be stolen or fall off.
