Changing the Name of Your iPhone

In this tutorial, we will learn how to change the name of your iPhone. The name of your device is what appears when you connect it to other devices or computers.

It’s a good idea to personalize it with something unique and meaningful to you. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Accessing the Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone and go to the home screen. Locate the “Settings” app which is represented by a gear icon. Tap on it to open the settings menu.

Step 2: Finding General Settings

Once you are in the settings menu, scroll down until you find “General” and tap on it. This will open a new set of options related to general settings.

Step 3: Accessing About

In the general settings menu, scroll down until you see “About” and tap on it. This will provide you with information about your device including its current name.

Step 4: Changing the Name

In the About section, look for “Name” and tap on it. A text field will appear where you can edit the current name of your iPhone.

Note: Before changing your iPhone’s name, make sure to choose a name that won’t confuse it with other devices when connecting via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

Tips for Choosing a New Name:

  • Be creative: Consider using a unique word or combination of words that reflect your personality or interests.
  • Avoid personal information: Do not include any personal details like your name, address, or phone number in the device’s name for privacy reasons.
  • Keep it simple: Choose a name that is easy to remember and type.

Step 5: Saving the New Name

Once you have entered the desired name for your iPhone, tap on “Done” or “Save” to save the changes. Your iPhone will now be identified with the new name when connecting to other devices.

Note: It may take a few moments for your iPhone to update its name across all connected devices.


Congratulations! You have successfully changed the name of your iPhone.

Remember, customizing your device’s name can make it more personal and easily identifiable. Have fun choosing a unique and meaningful name that reflects who you are!
