I work for UPS and people have tried to steal iPhones only to be tracked and arrested

Thank you for letting us know. Does that also go for iPads?

They can track iphones and ipads and I also believe they can track the laptops

What’s your method of lifting when you use a bag? Just curious. You seem pretty experienced

I act like I'm looking at several different items with money in my hand to make it seem like I'm gonna pay for something when in reality i enter the,store and spend about five minutes or so making it look like im browsing when in reality I'm picking and choosing my desired items then head to one of my blind spots and quickly stuff said items in my backpack

They can get you if you emerge from your blind spot and the items disappear, you need a casual way to conceal them when you enter your blind spot.

I personally like hiding things under shelves in the blind spot then picking them up the next day. It may be time consuming but at least it’s safe

Would a Walmart even have the information to track an ipad? Not that I’m going to lift one now that you’ve said that. I’m just curious.

They'd report it stolen to apple and they'd be able to track them via their serial numbers

I think all of the Apple products that are multifunctional and connect to the internet (i.e. Laptops, Desktops, iPhones, etc) are trackable so really just don't lift those. Airpods and similar stuff to that is safe I believe.
