With AirDrop you can quickly transfer files wirelessly between iPhones, iPads and Macs. When you share a document, the recipient sees the name of the sending device. If you want to change your AirDrop name, you only need to do it in a few steps. Here’s how to do it.
Before we start, it̵
First, open “Settings” on your iPhone or iPad.
In Settings, navigate to General> About.
On the name screen, tap the text entry field, enter the new name for your device, then tap Done. This name is also the AirDrop name of the device.
The next time you send a document via AirDrop, the receiving iPhone, iPad, or Mac will see the new name you just entered.
Have fun wirelessly sending photos and videos through the air like magic. Imagine going back 200 years and telling someone you could do this – they’d want to buy an iPhone right away. Too bad for them!
