Additional Information Regarding Changing your iPhone Bluetooth Name
The basic criteria that Apple iPhone’s follow to set a default name for the Bluetooth is that they take your Name, which is associated with the Apple ID, and set the Bluetooth name as “Your_Name’s iPhone”. For instance, if the Apple ID has the name Andrew on it, the default Bluetooth name on your iPhone will be Andrew’s iPhone. Although the default name is not at all bad, sometimes it can create a lot of confusion. Let’s suppose you have multiple iPhones or there are multiple people with the same name in one room, the other person won’t be able to find the right device to connect to.
In such cases, where there are many people with the same name, this default Bluetooth name is not a viable choice to use as it can be very confusing. With that said, it’s highly important that you should change your Bluetooth’s name to something else that can make the other person recognize you more uniquely and easily.
The same case can happen while connecting to AirPods as well. Once you set up your AirPods, they automatically get linked to your Apple ID and fetch your first name from there. Using your first name, you’ll always find your AirPods named “Your_Name’s AirPods”. Again, if there are two people in the same room who have the same name, you might end up trying to connect to someone else’s AirPods.
Well, it’s also possible to rename your AirPods as well. It’s pretty simple as all you need to do is click on the (i) button that appears right beside your AirPods Name, in the Connected Devices section of your iPhone’s Bluetooth Settings. From there, you can set your AirPods name to whatever you want, it’s that simple!
