Laser etching and engraving for the Apple iPad at Adafruit Industries

Pt 2486
Adafruit Industries is pleased to announce we will be laser etching and engraving the Apple iPad once the units start shipping. The backing of the devices are etchable, just like the Macbooks, Kindles and other devices we etch here. We’ll also be etching the outside leather cases. We’ll post up photos once we crank out the first dozen or so 🙂


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Is the back white or black? If white as pictured, I thought you couldn’t engrave them without the plastic yellowing. Is there a trick to making it work?

  2. Would be cool to etch a notepad design on the back, lines and binder holes etc. Well someone might like it 🙂

  3. The backs are aluminum.

  4. I am wondering what Apple’s replacement policy will be considering laser etched backs.

    Could it void the replacement policy?
