This article shows you how to easily customize your iPhone's hotspot name so you can easily identify your device on the network. Make your hotspot stand out with a personal and unique name!
When you want to connect to the internet on the go, setting up your own personal hotspot can be a great solution. By enabling your iPhone's personal hotspot, you can connect your other devices, such as your laptop or tablet, to your iPhone's data connection. When you enable your personal hotspot, it will have a default name. Depending on the model of your iPhone, it may be something generic like “iPhone” or “John’s iPhone.” But if you want to make it easier to recognize your hotspot, you can customize your iPhone's hotspot name. Here’s how to do it.
Step 1: Open the Settings App
The first step to customizing your iPhone's hotspot name is to open the Settings app. This can be done from the home screen of your iPhone. Once the Settings app is open, you'll need to scroll down to the Personal Hotspot section.
Step 2: Select Your Network Name
In the Personal Hotspot section, you'll find an option for selecting your network name. Tap on this option and you'll be presented with a list of names you can choose from. You can either select one of the default names, or you can create your own custom name.
Step 3: Create Your Custom Name
If you don't like any of the default names, you can create your own custom name. To do this, tap on the "Create New Name" button at the bottom of the list. You'll be presented with a text field where you can type in your desired name. Once you've entered your name, tap on the "Done" button.
Step 4: Confirm Your New Name
Once you've created your custom name, you'll need to confirm it. To do this, tap on the "Confirm" button. This will take you to a confirmation screen where you can review your new name. If you're happy with it, tap on the "Done" button to save your new name.
Step 5: Enable Your Hotspot
Once you've saved your new name, you'll need to enable your personal hotspot. This can be done by going back to the Personal Hotspot section in the Settings app and tapping on the "Enable Personal Hotspot" option. Once you've enabled your personal hotspot, your new name will be displayed and you can connect your other devices to it.
Customizing your iPhone's hotspot name is a great way to make it easier to recognize your hotspot when you're connecting other devices. It's also a great way to add a personal touch to your hotspot. With just a few simple steps, you can customize your iPhone's hotspot name to something more memorable and personal.
