If you’re curious to know more on how to change the Bluetooth name of your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, here’s the thing. The Bluetooth name is actually the iPhone’s name. That’s why, when you are trying to set up such a connection and the phone scans for the nearby Apple devices, you only get to see the factory name. And if there’s more than one person with an iPhone 8 in the range, we can understand your frustration.
Now, to give your smartphone a little bit more personality, you can start by changing its name. As already indicated, when you do so, you also edit the Bluetooth Name. While you’re thinking what new, custom name to give your iPhone, we will show you how to do it.
Start from Settings, as always, and select the About menu, under the General tab. Look for the Name feature (you should easily find it right at the top of the screen). Select the Name field, type the new name, and select the Done button in the end.
Consider your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus’ Bluetooth name already changed!
