Apple Showcases Cute Ways Customers Have Customized Their AirPods Cases in Korean Ad

Apple today shared a new AirPods ad in Korea that showcases a variety of cute ways in which customers have customized their AirPods charging cases, including adding heart stickers, teddy bear ornaments, salt and pepper decals, and more. Many of the ‌AirPods‌ cases have also been transformed into keychains.


Apple does not offer any of these customization options for ‌AirPods‌ cases in Korea or elsewhere and is merely promoting the creativity of its Korean customers. The ad is featured at the top of Apple's homepage in Korea.


This follows Apple's creative "Bounce" ad that highlighted the newer wireless charging case available for ‌AirPods‌.

I think Apple are missing a trick by not selling an official AirPods silicone cover in matching iPhone/Apple Watch bands colours. $20

An Apple ad I actually like. Haven't liked any in a long while. It's got the old Apple ad vibe to it from when Steve Jobs was around.

It’s actually very similar to the MacBook Air “stickers” tv spot from 4/5 years ago:

AKA: “look how desperate our customers get when we don’t offer colour options”

Oh give me a break. If you don't want to put your airpod case in another case, you don't have to. Some people have fun with this stuff, it makes them happy. What's going on in your life, if that makes you unhappy?

Yep. I’ve been to South Korea and most cases shops I’ve seen sell cases for the AirPods case.

Yes! That ad was the first thing that sprang to mind when I was watching the Korean ad. Both are very well done, and encourage personalisation of Apple products.

There’s lots of these types of cases on eBay. Very cute.

The cuteness is nice (and I, non-Korean) think the little bears are awesome.
But this stuff is SEVERELY functional. A plastic cover allows you to attach the AirPods case with a carabiner to somewhere convenient. I attach it to a belt loop on my pants; some women might attach it to a handbag strap.

You can buy (much less cute ) versions of these at Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/s?k=airpods+case+cover+with+apple+watch+band&crid=3ELYIGT3IWQIU&sprefix=airpods+case+cover+apple+watc%2Caps%2C245&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_29

The best packages also come with a plastic ting you slip onto your Apple Watch band, so that you can easily slide Airpod(s) onto your watch band. REALLY handy. Seriously, if you're operating without both of these, your life is just more complicated than it needs to be.

And yes, I do hope Apple, soon enough, jumps onto this band wagon same as phone and ipad cases. The Amazon ones are fine (at least the ones I bought) but Apple's versions tend to be just that much more elegant and thought out.

Interesting that they don't show any examples of the AirPods themselves customized.

Hi Nicky, I'm not sure how that was interpreted as disdain for Airpod cases, my girlfriend got some for her Airpods with little cat ears - which are fine. Sorry if I offended.

I was simply highlighting that Apple needs to sell different colourways for their Airpods, because they themselves are highlighting customers desire for diversity and individuality. I myself was seriously considering getting a custom pair from Colorware ('https://www.colorware.com/categories.aspx?category=189') until my partner bought me some regular ones.


Why does Apple need to do EV

But nobody would wear AirPod cases, they stay in pockets/bags so it won't matter.
People who get this kind of stuff are probably the kind that have hundreds of colourful toys in their bedroom.


The whole point of these covers is that you don't HAVE to keep your Airpods case in a bag/pocket!
