    How can I get my iMac to show the correct name of my iPhone? For instance, when I am in maps on my Mac and I send an address to my phone, it shows "iPhone (2)" instead of "Sean's iPhone." ITunes on my Mac does see the proper name of my iPhone though.

    If you go into settings>general>About on the iPhone you can change the name there.
    Or maybe I'm misunderstanding you.

    I did change the name on my phone, but my iMac isn't seeing that name when using share functions. It shows as iPhone (2)

    iTunes and iOS: Change the name of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod

    That's already done. iTunes shows the correct name. But pulling up the share sheet from maps on the iMac doesn't show the correct name my iPhone

    Interesting. I'll have to try it on my MBP when I get home.

    So does iPhone (2) show up anywhere else like manage devices in iTunes?

    No, iTunes shows the correct name in the sidebar. And I don't back up to my computer with my phone.

    Try backing up your phone to iTunes and see what happens.
