The default name of a new iPhone is always “iPhone” but you can change the name for easy identification when you setup a personal Hotspot or when you plug it into another device and also when someone wants to Airdrop file to you.
Below are the easy steps to change the default name of your iPhone or iPad.
- Go to Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
- Go to General from the settings.
- Tap on the About tab.
- Tap on Name.
- Enter the name you would like your iPhone or iPad to take.
- Tap Done on the onscreen keyboard when you are done typing.
