Learn to Rename AirPods or AirPods Pro to Something Else for a More Personal Touch to Your Earphones
Apple's approach to technology is super basic in certain areas. You connect your brand new AirPods to your iPhone or iPad and boom, your AirPods are now called '[Your Name]'s AirPods.' Nothing funky here. So if you want to rename AirPods or AirPods Pro to something else then you can do that too, we will show you how. Let's jump right in.
Step 1. Connect your AirPods or AirPods Pro to your iPhone or iPad.
Step 2. Launch the Settings app.
Step 3. Tap on Bluetooth.
Step 4. Now tap on the 'i' icon next to your AirPods.
Step 5. Under the Name section, tap on your AirPods' name.
Step 6. Change the name to anything you like and then tap on Done.
Of course, you can get absolutely creative in this arena by coming up with witty names or reviving an old meme of sorts. It's entirely up to you and once you tap on that Done button the changes will be synced across your devices too, which is extremely nice.
A lot of people might dismiss this tutorial as something which they don't need, and I agree with your thought. But keep one thing in mind, these little things are something which make or break the personalization touch which a lot of users crave out there. I can still recall the time when people used to rename their iPhones to Titanic so that whenever they connect their phone to iTunes it would say 'Titanic is syncing.' Super insensitive given modern times, but hey, a little name change ended up in a chuckle or two.
