How to Change the Name to the Mac, iPhone or any Apple device

For many years you have been using an Apple device but you might not know all its details. I recently had to access Find my iPhone and I realized that my device did not have an appropriate name. They were simply called iPhone or Alltop9’s Apple Watch. So, I decided to modify them and make them all homogeneous. Here’s guide on how to change the name of your Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod, iWatch, AirPods or any Apple device.
