Step-by-step guide on how to change the network name of your iPhone or iPad. This guide will also help you to change the name of your iPad and iPod touch.
What’s the Network Name?
Every device has the network name (a.k.a. hostname). When talking about Windows PC, your laptop or desktop can be accessed by hostname or IP-address on the LAN or even Internet. But mobile devices also have it.
The closest example: if you log in to your router’s web interface, open the DHCP Clients List section you can find your iPhone in the list mentioned by its hostname. By default apple devices have a network name like Brian’s iPhone or Amanda’s iPad.
