How to put your face on your AirPods case with Apple’s free Memoji engraving


Apple first launched free engraving with the 2nd-gen AirPods in 2019 and expanded the options to include emoji in early 2020. But did you know you can put your own face on AirPods with free Memoji engraving? Here’s where and how to access the option.

If you head to Apple’s website to order a new pair of AirPods or AirPods Pro, you’ll see the option to personalize them with engraving. That includes being able to use over 40 emoji, the alphabet, or numbers.

However, along with AirPods Pro 2, Apple added the ability to engrave AirPods with Memoji exclusively through the Apple Store app.

Interestingly, Apple just highlighted the app’s exclusive Memoji engraving feature in the release notes of version 5.18 today. But it quietly made a mention of the option launching in the AirPods Pro 2 press release back in September.

  2. Search for AirPods or AirPods Pro
  3. Near the top under “Personalize them for free,†tap Add Engraving
  4. Tap the text box > now tap the Memoji tab just above the emoji
  5. Choose Allow Access
  6. Now you can pick from your existing Memoji or create a new one
  7. Tap Save in the top right corner when you’ve decided
  8. Swipe down and buy your custom AirPods
