Does your iPad or iPhone have the correct name? Or does it have the generic name of iPad or iPhone?
When you use features like Airdrop and Personal Hotspot, it is essential that your device is named so it can be distinguished from other devices.
A generic name for the device could make it hard to identify it if you are in a crowded place where lots of other iPhones and iPads are 'broadcasting' their names.

Get answers to questions like this at the iPad and iPhone User Group
At iTandCoffee, we host regular User Groups on a number of topics, where you can come and get answers to your questions and learn all sorts of great tips and tricks. These 1-hour sessions are small, social, fun - and no question is too simple.
Below are the upcoming User Group sessions at iTandCoffee. iTandCoffee Club members can attend these sessions for free using their free session allowance (3 for Basic and unlimited for Plus and Premium). (Not yet a member of the iTandCoffee Club? Find out about the benefits of membership of The iTandCoffee Club here).
Non-members are also welcome to attend one of these sessions each year for only $20. Subsequent sessions cost $40. Places at each session are limited, so bookings are essential. Book online below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you can't get to us in Camberwell, Victoria, you can still be involved by watching the videos of our user group sessions (and any other advertised 'Club' session). Simply join the iTandCoffee Club - take out Plus, Online or Premium membership to get access to all user group videos (and more!). You can even send your question/s to us before the session and we will include it in our list to address at the session.
