Apple is imposing limits on engraving offensive text, numbers, or emoji characters on an AirTag. The device can fit up to four characters or three emojis, but being creative with them is not an option.
Apple’s system does not allow inappropriate content on board, for example, you cannot pair a Horse Face emoji with a Pile of Poo emoji, while other animal-poo mixtures are allowed.
Apple restricts offensive AirTag engravings and emojis
This is not the first time that Apple has prohibited inappropriate content engravings, such restrictions can be found on iPad and AirPod engravings. However, you can put the Pile of Poo emoji first followed by the Horse Face emoji.
As pointed out by The Verge, the tech giant provides you with enough letters for some creative diction but restricts some of the prominent offenders. NSFW and SUCK are still on the table though.
After what feels like ages of rumors, speculation, and worry that I was getting way too obsessed with a Bluetooth item tracker that seemed similar to ones made by several other companies, AirTags are finally here. But before you preorder the Mentos-esque pucks, there’s something you should be aware of: if you want to engrave your AirTags, you can’t combine a horse and poop emoji in that order.
Apple’s online personalization tool is easily offended by some of the college humor or toilet humorists. Hopefully, with the huge volume of expected orders, Apple will decide to be a bit lenient with its restrictions since each individual would want to leave a personal mark on their device for better identification.

AirTags are available for $29 each or for a four-pack $99, engraving is free. Online orders will commence on 23 April and shipping on April 30.
