Masters of Destruction iFixit has found that you don’t need an expensive accessory for your new Apple AirTags, to convert an item tracking disk into a main ring, you just need to work with a power drill.
In its most recent disturbance, The I fix it The team found that it was possible to drill a small hole in the airtag without damaging the functionality to make room for the key chain.
Not that we would recommend it, but if you want to attach your airtag to your keys or backpack or anything else, it would probably be better for the rarely-priced Hermes-branded luggage that costs you about £ 300. Will set back.

Sam Goldhart of IFixit writes, “After some reconnaissance within our first airtag, we caught the 1/16” drill bit and carefully punched holes through the second tracker in our four-pack. “We miraculously managed to avoid all the chips, boards and antennas, drilling only through plastic and glue. The best part? The airtag survived and acted as if nothing happened. “
iFixit has also described some ‘safe zones’ where users can drill down without damaging Apple’s first product with a fully replaceable battery in years. Essentially they are clips for the battery holder.
Of course, any such action would immediately void the warranty for the airtag, but because it is a cheaper item, according to Apple’s standards, and not the flagship smartphone or tablet, the risk reward ratio is much higher.
