AirDrop is a feature on iOS devices that allows users to share files between them. It’s fast, convenient, and barely affects file quality.
But, if you have several devices with the same name within range of each other, it can be confusing and even frustrating to send files. That’s why you may want to change your AirDrop name.
How to Change AirDrop Name on an iPhone
When transferring files between your Apple devices using AirDrop, it is essential to have a name that makes it easy for others to identify your device. That way, when you send a file, it can be sent to the right person and it doesn’t get lost in a huge pile of other files that may share the same WiFi network.
When you transfer files using AirDrop on your iPhone, your device’s name is displayed alongside the profile picture for other people to see. If you don’t like how your device is displayed to other people, it’s simple to change that and use a more personalized name.
Changing your AirDrop name is easy to do and it only takes a few seconds. The process will differ slightly between your Apple devices, but it’s a quick and easy solution to ensuring that you can easily recognize the device that you are sending files to.
You can change your AirDrop name on a Mac as well by clicking the Apple icon on the top left corner of the screen and then opening up System Preferences. From there, click on the Sharing tab and then type in a new name in the Computer Name field. This will then be reflected in any AirDrop and other sharing services on your Mac.
