People Are Drilling Holes in Their Apple AirTags.
The new Apple’s AirTag trackers are going viral, but something is missing, a key feature. In contrast to Tile and other location-tracking product. Unfortunately airTags do not have an integrated hole or loop for attaching them to other items.
A smart steps from apple to push the owners to purchase a standalone case, such as the high-priced leather holders available on apple’s website.
Not everybody will drop a lot of cash on a keychain holder, it’s not surprising to see people are hrilling holes in their apple airTags.
It’s not recommended but you can drill a hole into an AirTag without damaging the internal components. It’s not a very elegant look, but it works to attach the AirTag to a keychain.
Otherwise when you decide drilling the hole, you need to be sure you’re drilling as close to the edge of the plastic housing as possible.

The internal configuration of the system and the location of the logic board are revealed during the dismantling of the small tracker.
The AirTag has a circular circuit board that is slightly smaller than the shell, which is unsurprising. There is just enough space at the edge of the plastic casing to drill a small hole.
While drilling such a hole will be stupid and will be convenient, buyers should be aware that doing so would void the warranty. If moisture seeps into the cavity, it could damage the tracker both during and after the drilling.
