Rename Bluetooth device from settings

To change the name of a Bluetooth device, you need to first make sure that your iPhone is connected to the device itself. You cannot rename a device if it is not connected to your mobile phone.

Once connected, follow these steps:

  1. Open Setting and go to Bluetooth.
  2. All devices have an information icon next to their name (with the letter I). Tap the icon of the connected device you want to rename.
  3. Selection Name.
  4. Enter the desired name and return to the previous page to finish the process.
