Change your iPhone’s name

Patrick Stafford /

When you plug in your iPhone, iTunes will show you the name of the phone. But maybe you want to change it.


It’s easy enough. Open the Settings app, then head to the “general” tab. At the very top of the screen, you should see an option for “name”. Click on that.


There you can change the name of your iPhone to anything you want – and you can change it back or to something different at any time.
