If you’re an iPhone user, you may have noticed that the default name of your Bluetooth device is “iPhone.” That’s great if you only use one iPhone, but what if you own two? Or three? Changing your name will also prevent potential problems for any other iPhone users in your area.
Having a unique Bluetooth name ensures that you don’t get confused with other people who are using Bluetooth and can help you avoid misconnection. In a place with multiple devices with the same name, one of them may connect to the wrong device and cause problems.
How do I change my Bluetooth name on iPhone?
To change your Bluetooth name on your iPhone, follow these steps:
- Go to Settings > Bluetooth.
- Tap the name of your device at the top of the screen (this will be the first thing listed).
- Tap Rename this Device at the bottom of the screen, and then enter a new name for your device.
- Tap Done when you’re done!
Why don’t I see the option to rename my iPhone?
There are a few reasons why you might not see the option to rename your iPhone. One possibility is that you’re not running the latest version of iOS. Another possibility is that you don’t have enough storage space on your device to complete the rename.
If you’re not running the latest version of iOS, you can update your device by going to Settings > General > Software Update. If you don’t have enough storage space, you can try deleting some unused apps or files.
If you still don’t see the option to rename your iPhone, it’s possible that your device doesn’t support this feature.
