How to pick a custom emoji and name for your AirTag

Have you got an Apple AirTag? Aside from buying various cases and holder accessories, the best way to customise it is through the software: you can name your AirTag whatever you want and set a custom icon using any emoji. Here’s how to do it.

When you first set up your AirTag, the iPhone will ask you to choose what kind of item you are using the tag with. This will give the tag a default name according to the category: keys, luggage, wallet, etcetera.

However you can customise it any time and if you want to change the emoji without changing the name you can do that as well. For instance, you could want to use a different key emoji than the default one that the Find My app chose for you. You can customize the AirTag’s name and icon after you have set it up.
