By Last Updated: December 25, 2023

Whether you are getting a new gadget ready or tweaking the settings on an existing one, changing the name of your iPhone can be a handy way to make it unique and stand out in the crowd of devices. This becomes particularly useful when dealing with multiple Apple devices and willing to have a quick way to tell them apart.

If your iPhone is the go-to for Bluetooth or Airdrop sharing, or if you rely on the Find My app to track it down, assigning it a distinctive name is a smart move. This makes it easy for you and others to identify your device. In addition, it adds a layer of security by keeping your personal information safe, especially in situations where you’re on a shared internet connection or using a public WiFi hotspot. The steps to change iPhone name are as follows:

  • Go to the Settings app of your iPhone and open it. 
  • Click on General.
  • Tap on About and look for the option that says Name. Tap on it and you will see your current iPhone name. 
  • Delete it and type a new name that you like. 
  • Click on Done as you finish.

Note – The above-mentioned steps to change iPhone name are useful for iPhone 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17. These steps may not work for an iPhone of earlier versions.

Your iPhone name will be updated and you will see it on the top of the screen. You can also check it by connecting your iPhone to iTunes or Finder on your computer, or by using AirDrop or Bluetooth with other devices. You can change your iPhone name as often as you want, but make sure it is something that you can remember and that is appropriate for your device.
