    are you able to rename your Bluetooth devices somehow within the settings app? I got a few new devices for Christmas and my birthday. I have about five Bluetooth devices under settings. I was wondering if you can rename them so it would be easier to know which is which

    It will depend on the device.

    For some devices, like AirPods, the Bluetooth settings will offer a Name field to rename them.
    See this Apple knowledge article for more details: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT205348#ios

    On other devices, the device might offer a way to change its name. Since they’re varied, I can say exactly how, but the manual will give you the information.

    Finally, there are devices whose name can’t be changed.

    If you are referring to Apple devices, you can change the name by going to the About Section in the settings on the individual product.

    I went to the information icon next to the device and I did not see the name field on any of them.

    In that case, if it is changeable, it’s from the device’s side. Only some devices allow the name to be changed.

    Are you making sure the device you want to rename is connected and powered on?
