How do I find my iphone device name?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To find your iPhone device name, you need to open the Settings app and navigate to the General section. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

1. Unlock your iPhone and locate the Settings app. It has a gray icon with gears on it.
2. Tap on the Settings app to open it.
3. Scroll down and look for the “General” option. It should have a gray icon with a gear-shaped symbol.
4. Tap on “General” to access the general settings of your iPhone.
5. Within the General settings, scroll down until you find the “About” option. It is usually located towards the top of the list.
6. Tap on “About” to view detailed information about your iPhone.
7. On the About screen, you will see various details about your device, including the device name.
8. Look for the “Name” field, which displays the current name of your iPhone.
9. The device name is usually set during the initial setup of your iPhone or can be changed later in the settings.
10. Take note of the device name displayed on the screen.

It’s worth mentioning that the device name is not the same as the model name or model number of your iPhone. The device name is a unique identifier that you can personalize to distinguish your iPhone from other devices when connected to a computer or other devices via Bluetooth.

If you want to change your iPhone’s device name, you can do so by tapping on the “Name” field in the About section and entering a new name. Keep in mind that the device name should be unique and not contain any special characters or spaces.

Finding your iPhone’s device name can be useful when connecting your device to other devices or services that require you to know the specific name of your iPhone. It’s a simple process that allows you to quickly locate this information within the Settings app on your iPhone.
