Surprise in the AirPod section of the official Apple Store website: From now on you can personalize the ones you buy by laser engraving with emojis . Until now it was possible to add only text. This follows the tradition that was born with iPods to give a personal touch to the product. You can put our name or a clever phrase on the outside of the headphone charging case.
Text could be added to the AirPods from the AirPods 2. But now we have an additional feature: we can record emojis instead of text. Not just any emoji, just one from a catalogue of 31 emoticons, but still a fun touch that remains as you can see in the image above. It seems that the font size has also increased, and it varies depending on the number of characters we use. However, these characters should all be in capital letters and only allow for two or three words.
The engraving option is available on all models of the AirPods and AirPods Pro, loaded as they are. It is exclusively ordered on the Apple website to be purchased online and received at home, or picked up at a physical Apple Store. It is not possible to order this engraving from these physical stores or authorized dealers.

Engraving the charging case makes your AirPods unique, but beware: if the message is too personal you may not have it so easy to sell them in the future if that is your intention. If you dare, this engraving is completely free. After doing some tests I think that the emojis that look better are the ones of the animals.
