If you’re going to buy AirPods for yourself then you may not be fussed about having them engraved but if you’re buying a loved one some AirPods then why not add a personalized message?

How to engrave your Airpods

If you want to engrave your AirPods, you’ll need to do it from Apple’s official website. You cannot take your existing Airpods to your local Apple store and engrave them, it has to be done at the time of purchase online. It’s also worth pointing out that once you have engraved your AirPods you cannot change the engravement because it’s done with a laser at the time of purchase. Apple makes this super simple to do, simply add a line of text when you’re selecting which AirPods you want.

Limitations of engraving your Airpods

When you’re thinking of engraving your AirPods you need to take into account that there are limitations on the amount of text you can use. After all, the AirPods case is rather small.

You can engrave 22 characters on your AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.

You can only engrave 14 characters on the standard AirPods. The engraving takes place on the Airpods case, not the actual earbuds themselves. You’ll be happy to know that you don’t just have text to play with, you can add any emoji you like too as shown in the image below;

Can you return engraved AirPods?

It is widely thought that you cannot return your engraved AirPods because they have been marked by the engraving laser; however, if your new AirPods have any issues, you should be entitled to the standard Apple warranty.

If you have decided to take advantage of this free service that Apple has then checked out some of our best engraving ideas for different family members and different occasions. Some are really sweet and others will be sure to make a loved one laugh!

You could even add a name and contact number so that if you lose your AirPods you can hopefully get them back a lot easier. When it comes to engraving your AirPods though, the sky is the limit!
