    When we got our daughter an ipod a few years ago, i set up her account. So when i got my daughter an apple 7plus recently, her account info transferred to the phone, but the apple id always says"Seth's phone"
    Is that the apple id? If so, how can I change that?
    I am an android person so I really have little idea how apples os work.

    Did you set up her new device from a backup of her old device or from your device?

    Was the account you set up for her done with your Apple ID, or a separate Apple ID in her name? Where, exactly, does it say "Seth's phone"?

    What I thought, but he said his name is on the Apple ID. But that wouldn't say "Seth's iphone".

    Does she have her own Apple ID or are you using yours?
