Now that iOS 5 is PC-free, changing the name of your iPhone, iPad or iPod directly from the device itself is possible. With the earlier versions, it meant that if you wanted to change iPhone name, you had to connect your device to your PC via USB, connect to iTunes or fighting sync then proceed with the name change. However, that changed with the introduction of iOS 5 and the latter version. It is now possible to change iPod name or your iPad name. You are only a few steps away from changing your device’s name!

Most people love having memorable names for their devices. Using only one app, you can do this in a matter of a few taps. Having a memorable name is very useful especially when connecting to a Wi-Fi Personal Hotspot tethering or connecting to iCloud backup and restore. By having a unique name that is easily identifiable for your iPod/iPhone/iPad means that you can easily pick out your device from a crowd.
