So what is it ok to do, or not to do this? he also would like to engrave her name and his home phone on it. so I told him that you can’t engrave a lot of info; it is limited to a few characters. This means Apple will only engrave 4 to 6 characters on it.

One of the concerns is that his pets constantly dip their collar pendants in water while drinking. But I also told him that the Apple AirTags are water-resistant for up to 30 minutes. Kindly, Don’t worry about it. As well as adjust by good fit so he or she not able to chew up the device.
