The name of your iPhone is more important than you might think. It appears when AirDropping files go to other Apple devices, when you monitor the locations of your devices via Find My and when syncing with your computer. While "Jake Peterson & # 39; s iPhone" gets the job done, I'd rather give the phone that I spend all my time with a good name.
Changing the name of your iPhone is actually very simple; the option is just hidden. To get started, go to Settings -> General -> About -> Name. Here, iOS activates the keyboard automatically, so you can type a new name to replace the existing one. If you want to start over, tap (X) and iOS will return the original name. Once completed, tap "About" to cement the name.
Calling your Apple device something smart is a tradition that is older than the iPhone itself. Countless jokes and memes talk about calling your iPod "The Titanic" so that iTunes will read "The Titanic Synchronizes" when you connect it.
You can join in the fun with your iPhone today or come up with something more personal for you. It's your iPhone; adjust it as you wish. Just know that macOS Catalina no longer has iTunes, and there is no clear "… Is Syncing" indicator in Finder, apart from the running synchronization symbol.
