What caused my iPhone name to change without me knowing?


iMore Question

I plugged my phone into the computer today and the device name said Jack's iPhone. I don't know how this could have happened because my name is Mollie and I didn't change it to that and no one else could have. The computer administrator is Jack but it has nothing to do with iTunes. Could that effect the name if my device was previously unnamed?

Yes, it's possible. Anyway, you can change the name of the device by going to Settings - General - About and then tap on the Name field.
