There’s now a new way to personalize Apple AirPods and AirPods Pro.
Here are all the details and how to buy direct from Apple – plus the latest AirPods deals. I’ll be updating these deals so please check back – this update includes deals added on Saturday, January 4.
Apple AirPods Pro and emoji engraving. How cute is that little tiger on the right?
Apple AirPods Pro and Apple AirPods have been incredibly popular with Apple straining to keep up with demand pretty much consistently since the first earbuds went on sale.
Even the $249 purchase price of the new – and superb – AirPods Pro version hasn’t put customers off.
You can read my full review here, by the way:
Now, Apple has added a new feature. Of course, you can have your name, number or other message engraved – free – on the case when you buy online from apple.com. You can have eight characters in a large font or 14 in a smaller one.
Add emoji to your AirPods case
And now, there’s another option, too. An emoji, for example.
AirPods Pro with pig animoji
Just the one emoji, thank you, but that should be enough. You can check out online what it will look like. The pig emoji is frankly irresistible. But maybe you prefer a unicorn, a grinning face, an alien, a dragon, a heart, a dog, a cow, a monkey or even a poo. Many of them are carefully modeled on Apple’s Animoji.
The other AirPods Pro case engraving options
If you want AirPods Pro and to choose your engraving, $249, go here.
If it’s the regular AirPods in a wireless charging case, $199, click here.
And if you want AirPods with the regular charging case, then click here.
The only place you can get this engraving done free is at Apple when you buy online direct. So, if there’s a better deal elsewhere, like the offers below, then you will need to buy the plain case.
One other thing, if it’s just the case you’re after, say if you’re upgrading from charging case to wireless charging case, even Apple doesn’t offer engraving for the case on its own.
