Naming a group text on your iPhone 11 can be a helpful way to organize your conversations and easily differentiate between multiple group chats. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the simple steps to name a group text on your iPhone 11.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To begin, locate and tap on the Messages app icon on your iPhone 11’s home screen. The Messages app is represented by a green speech bubble icon.

Step 2: Open the Group Text

Next, open the group text that you want to name by tapping on it from the list of conversations in the Messages app. If you cannot find the desired group text on your main screen, you can swipe down on the conversation list to reveal the search bar and enter keywords to find it quickly.

Step 3: Tap on the Info Button

Once inside the group text, look for and tap on the “i” (info) button located at the top-right corner of your screen. The info button is represented by a lowercase “i” inside a circle.

Step 4: Tap on “Enter a Group Name”

In the Group Info menu, scroll down until you see an option labeled “Enter a Group Name.” Tap on this option to proceed.

Step 5: Type in a Name

A text field will appear where you can now enter a name for your group chat. Tap inside this field and use your iPhone’s keyboard to type in your desired group name. You have up to 25 characters to work with.

Tips for Naming Your Group Text:

  • Be descriptive: Choose a name that accurately represents the purpose or topic of the group chat.
  • Keep it concise: Aim for a shorter name that is easy to read and remember.
  • Add emojis: To make your group name more visually appealing, consider adding emojis that relate to the group’s theme.

Step 6: Save the Group Name

After typing in your desired group name, tap on the “Done” button located at the bottom-right corner of your screen to save the changes. Your group text will now display the chosen name instead of individual contact names or generic labels like “Unnamed Group.”


If you ever want to change or remove the group name, simply follow steps 1-4 again, and then either edit or delete the current group name in the “Enter a Group Name” field.

Congratulations! You have successfully named a group text on your iPhone 11. Enjoy staying organized and easily identifying your various chats with personalized names!
