How to Rename Airpods Using Different Devices

Customize the name of the Airpods according to your convenience.

Apple AirPods is the pioneer in truly wireless earphones and the best in class for its features and customizations. But Apple wants you to focus on listening to your AirPods rather than fussing with the settings. As a result, your original AirPods, AirPods 2, AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max are given a fairly generic name by default, which you may never discover until you choose to change it. You can rename your AirPods, AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max to any name using your iPhone/iPad, Android, Windows, and Mac.
