When you set up your iPhone for the first time, Apple gives it a generic name by default. It becomes his identity when you use AirDrop, pair it with Bluetooth devices, or connect to an access point. If you prefer something else, you can change the name of your iPhone in iOS.
If you recently reset your phone’s settings, its name might just be “iPhone”. However, there is an option in the “Settings” app to change the name of your iPhone to whatever you want.
To do this, open the “Settings” application on your iPhone and press “General”. You can also use Apple’s built-in function Spotlight Search to locate “Settings” if you can’t find it on your device’s home screen.
Then press “About”.
You see the current name of your device in the “Name” section; press it.
On this screen, tap the “X” next to your device’s current name to delete it.
Type the new name for your iPhone in the text box.
Press “Done” on the keyboard to save your changes.
Now when you return to the “About” section, you will see the new name for your iPhone.
It’s not just limited to your iPhone, you can use this guide to rename any computer, smartphone or tablet.
