In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of changing the Bluetooth name on your iPhone. Changing the Bluetooth name can be useful when you want to personalize your device or differentiate it from others in a crowded Bluetooth environment.

Step 1: Access Bluetooth Settings

To begin, open the Settings app on your iPhone. Look for the Bluetooth option and tap on it to access the Bluetooth settings.

Step 2: Find Your Device

Once you’re in the Bluetooth settings, you will see a list of available devices. Locate your device’s name in the list and tap on it.


If your device is not currently connected, make sure it is turned on and in pairing mode before proceeding to the next step.

Step 3: Change Bluetooth Name

In the device settings screen, you will find various options related to your device’s Bluetooth connection. Look for an option that allows you to change the name or label of your device. The specific wording may vary depending on your iPhone model and iOS version.

  • If using iOS 14 or later:
    • Tap on Name.
    • Enter a new name for your device using the keyboard.
    • Tap Done.
  • If using iOS 13 or earlier:
    • Tap on i, which stands for information.
    • Select a new name for your device by tapping on the existing name and typing a new one.

After following these steps, your device’s Bluetooth name will be updated to the new name you have chosen.

Additional Tips:

If you are experiencing difficulties connecting or pairing your device with another Bluetooth device after changing the name, try the following:

  • Restart both devices: Sometimes a simple restart can resolve connectivity issues.
  • Forget and reconnect: In your iPhone’s Bluetooth settings, tap on the “i” next to the device you are having trouble with, then select “Forget This Device.” Afterward, try pairing the devices again.
  • Update software: Ensure that both your iPhone and the other Bluetooth device have the latest software updates installed to ensure compatibility.

We hope this tutorial has helped you change the Bluetooth name on your iPhone. Personalizing your device’s name can make it easier to identify and connect in Bluetooth-enabled environments. Remember to keep it unique but easily recognizable for convenience!
