In this tutorial, we will learn how to rename your AirPods on an iPhone. Renaming your AirPods can be helpful when you have multiple pairs or simply want to give them a personalized name. Follow the steps below to easily rename your AirPods:

Step 1: Connect your AirPods to your iPhone

Make sure your AirPods are connected and paired with your iPhone. You can do this by opening the lid of the AirPods case near your iPhone and following the on-screen instructions.

Step 2: Open the Settings app

To rename your AirPods, open the Settings app on your iPhone. The Settings app is represented by a gear icon and can usually be found on the home screen of your device.

Step 3: Navigate to Bluetooth settings

In the Settings app, scroll down and tap on “Bluetooth”. This will take you to the Bluetooth settings page where you can manage all your connected Bluetooth devices.

Step 4: Find your AirPods in the list

On the Bluetooth settings page, locate your AirPods in the list of available devices. They should be listed with their current name, such as “AirPods” or “John’s AirPods”. Tap on them to access further options.

Step 5: Access AirPods settings

After tapping on your AirPods, you will be taken to a new page with more detailed information about them. Here, you can adjust various settings related to your AirPods, including their name.


If you have renamed one of your AirPods but not both, they might still appear as separate devices in the list. To ensure they are recognized as a single pair, it is recommended to rename both AirPods.

Step 6: Rename your AirPods

To rename your AirPods, tap on the current name displayed at the top of the page. This will open a text field where you can enter a new name for your AirPods.


The name you choose for your AirPods must be unique and cannot be used by any other Bluetooth device currently connected to your iPhone.

Step 7: Enter the new name

Using your device’s on-screen keyboard, enter the desired name for your AirPods. You can get creative and come up with a unique name that reflects your personality or simply use something descriptive like “Workout AirPods”.

Step 8: Save the new name

After entering the new name for your AirPods, tap “Save” or “Done” to apply the changes. Your iPhone will update the name of your AirPods accordingly.

Congratulations! You have successfully renamed your AirPods on an iPhone. The new name will now be displayed whenever you connect them to other devices or view their settings on your iPhone.


If you ever want to change the name again or revert back to the original name, simply follow these steps and enter a different name in Step 7.

Remember that renaming your AirPods does not affect their functionality but can make it easier for you to identify and manage them across multiple devices. Enjoy using your newly named AirPods!
