Apple Watch Series 3 (sin LTE), análisis: la generación del equilibrio.

No matter how many years you’ve been using an Apple device, you never know all the details. Recently I had to access Search my iPhone and I realized that my devices did not have a proper name. They were simply called iPhone or Eduardo’s Apple Watch, so I decided to modify them and make them all homogeneous. Here’s how to rename your Mac , iPhone or any Apple device.

Renaming a Mac is quite simple. To do this, simply go to System Preferences> Share. There you’ll see a field labeled “Computer Name”.

By doing this, we’ll be changing the name of our Mac that’s displayed on the network share and other places like Find My iPhone.

How to rename an iPhone or iPad

If you want to rename an iPhone or an iPad , you have two options. The first is shown in the image above, where from iTunes you can access the information on your device and double-click on its name. Doing this, we can modify it as we want.

The other alternative is to go to Settings> General> Information and edit the Name of the iPhone or iPad. In addition to changing in Find My iPhone, the network name that is created when you share the internet from this device will be changed.

Altering the name of our Apple Watch is also very simple. Just like before, from the Watch app on the iPhone itself and go to Settings> General> Information to rename it.

AirPods also have a name that can be changed. There’s a trick to doing this , as we’ll need to take one of them out and put it in our ear. With this done, on the iPhone go to Settings> Bluetooth and press the round “i” icon. There you can modify it.

With this done, we will have our own collection of Apple devices with the name we want . You can check it out from the Search My iPhone app or from iCloud.com, where you’ll see an image like the one above, depending on the devices you have.
